Title: Mentiroso, 2009
Dimensions: 20 in. x 30 in. x 1.5 in.
"I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas which borders Las Cruces, New Mexico and Juarez, Mexico. There I was saturated by a mix of romanticism for the American landscape and the hybridism of Mexican, American, and indigenous cultures. I am influenced by the mystique of the border region, including mesas, honkey-tonks, and big skies reaching as far as the eye can see."
This is the first of many pieces we will feature here on "The Mero Hueso" that will be available for auction at the Huevos Rancheros Gala and Silent Art Auction on October 3, 2009. The purpose of posting the art online is to pique your interest; you cannot pre-bid on or purchase a piece. But get hyped-- the art will look EVEN BETTER in person!!!
Even though you can't bid on a piece before Huevos, you can purchase a pre-sale ticket by calling San Anto at 210.226.7466. In the spirit of generosity, there is no set price for a pre-sale ticket, but the cost for SACA to host the event is $35.
