The Mexican artist Gabo Mendoza is inspired by the expressionist currents. Expressionism aims to enhance the emotional impact of the viewer by distorting and exaggerating the issues.
That is why it is common that in Gabo artworks the characters appear distorted and with exaggerated colors.
In this acrylic and paper woven on canvas, the artist portrays a mother with her son in her arms. Vibrant colors combined with the texture of woven paper give the portrait greater depth.
