Mapmaker Revisited

Catalog Number: 
Book, Badikian
Date: 
1999
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"In Beatriz Badikian's Mapmaker we are witness to the cartographer's presence as much as we are to the maps themselves - maps made of words, images, lines of exile, travel, love and longing, loss and celebration. As we move from poem to poem, reading, there is increasingly apparent the growth and consistency of a voice, a poetic speech that is quite recognizable the author's own. Fluent in two languages, Beatriz Badikian is touching in her quiet accomplishment, her lyrical strength." -- Ralph J. Mills, Jr.

Infinitas Gracias: Contemporary Mexican Votive Painting

Catalog Number: 
Book, Vilchis Roque
Date: 
2004
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
Infinitas Gracias is the first collection of the work of Alfredo Vilchis Roque, one of Mexico's most famous contemporary painters, and his sons. In the tradition of Catholic votives, each painting tells a miraculous tale and gives thanks to the intervening saint. Ablaze with intense color hearkening back to the natural pigment dyes of ancient Mexico, these works portray the kaleidoscope of issues that constitute modern urban existence. With over 200 paintings, from circus adventures to household accidents to adultery, drugs, and prostitution, Infinitas Gracias weaves together a bizarre tapestry of stories, some disturbing, some comical -- all unerringly wrought and profoundly touching.
