“Ancestral Visions” is a collaborative exhibition by student/apprentice Edgar Fernandez and master mentor Zarco Guerrero. Both artists explore the vast legacy of indigenous art through the contemporary mediums of painting and sculpture. They share a common vision to explore and reinterpret ancient symbols and metaphors in order to share what they see to be valuable lessons of transcendence and sustainability. They believe that the key to a brighter future is found in the almost completely erased history of our ancestral past. The artists recognize that what remains of the ancient codices, great cities and pyramids are full of valuable information that the artists interpret as gifts from grandparents that obliges them to bring back to life and into the light of the present. As activist, they maintain one foot in the studio and the other in the street at ground level with a community in desperate need of identity and dignity. “Ancestral Visions” is a form of “Resistance and Affirmation”, a reclaiming of a profound sense of belonging to this place, this country, this continent at this time, this very moment.
