When I was in art school, our principal medium was paper, says artist
Felipe Dávalos. Since then, I always let part of the background paper
show or keep its presence behind the image that lives on it. Made of
pulp modeled on a wood support, this head uses graphic elements that are
made of paper. The eyeglasses, of polyester resin, are intended to sharpen
the empty eyes. A tin can wrapped in paper sits on the head. The elaborate
and active headdress is reminiscent of those seen in pre-Columbian art.
