The technique is carried out in northwestern Mexico by the Wixarikas (Spanish Huicholes). For them everything that exists is sacred. Their religious beliefs consist in the veneration of their
holy trinity, the Deer, the Corn and the Sacred Cactus.
Their art is determined by very detailed symbolisms that have remained intact since the beginning of time, due to the fact that until recently they did not have a written language. Their
symbols represent their connection with other worlds and their communication with the gods.
Yarn painting consists of using a very thin layer of wax on the object we are going to "paint", followed by pressing the colored thread on the waxed surface creating the patterns of your vision.
Each piece can take hours, weeks or even months to complete, depending on the size and detail you give it.
For me, yarn painting is the key to my inner world, a way of praying and telling a story.
