Crowned with an agave plant and holding an agave bouquet, this mermaid appears in a card marked as number 3. It comes from Marina Pallares' original interpretation of the lotería, a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional Mexican images. The lotería made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. "I grew up in Jalisco, known for the production of tequila from agave plants, and as a child I used to play lotería all the time. These two facts inspired me to create the 'Tequila Lotto' series," confides Pallares, who credits the influence of Leopoldo Méndez and José Guadalupe Posada in her work. She masters aquafortis and aquatint etching techniques to create this eloquent composition.

Titled "Loteria tequilera" in Spanish. Made in Mexico.

May 14, 2014 - This is such a beautiful print--I'm very happy I purchased it! It's a nice size and can be enhanced with any typed of matting and framing!

Artisan: Marina Pallares

"I think painting has always been my destiny, because throughout my life, certain unexplainable things keep happening that lure me to the path of the fine arts.

"I have exhibited my work individually and collectively in Jalisco, San José del Cabo and Hamburg, Germany.

"I define myself as an eternal seeker. I don't like labeling myself or my work, so as soon as someone else tries to place me in a category or classification, I rebel and I change. It's just that it's early in my career and it would be dangerous, professionally speaking, to label me already.

"I enjoy having the biggest array of instruments available to express myself. In other words, I adapt techniques according to the theme that I'm working on.

"Most of my themes revolve around people and ordinary activities such as drinking coffee, riding a bike or dancing. Although sometimes I can be more complicated and express my dreams, my feelings, and other personal issues."
