CULTURA-DE-COLOR

This is the triptych I entered for Baterbys exhibition.  Below  is a description of its meaning and how this art work relates to the Hispanic Culture.

Da Gracias Por Agua

“Da Gracias Por Agua” 22″ high by 47″ wide by 6″ deep

My Triptych “Da Gracias Por Agua.” (Give Thanks for Water) reveres the essential element: Water.

The first relief quotes several lines from Jorge Argueta’s poem “El Agua:” “El Agua Es Sagrada” (Water is Sacred) “Es La Sangre De La Madre Tierra.” (It is the Blood of Mother Earth.)

“Los Cuatro Elementos,” the center sculpture features the four element covers floated above concave wells: Earth (Tierra), Air (Aire), Water (Agua) and Fire (Fuego.)

Atl, the Aztec symbol for water, is centered in the starburst design of the third piece. “El Agua Es Una Bendición” (Water is a Blessing) and “Da Gracias Por Agua” (Give Thanks for Water) are inscribed in Spanish around the water fount. Masaru Emoto, author of “The True Power of Water,” influenced my message of Water as a Blessing.

Each year, Orange County and the nation observe Hispanic Heritage Month by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

The observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week and was expanded in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan to the 30-day period from September 15 to October 15.

2012-HHC-300x220

The date of September 15 was chosen because it’s the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.

Mexico and Chile also celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. October 12, celebrated as Columbus Day or El Día de la Raza, also falls within Hispanic Heritage Month.
