This new series by local acrylic mixed media painter Leela Francis features the artist’s fascination with the rich cultural heritage that thrives in Oaxaca City, Mexico where she spent time last Spring. “Living most of my life in more rural settings where nature is my muse, I was smitten by the interplay of textures and patterns abounding in this vibrant city so central to Mexican history. Truly an enchanting visual backdrop to the politically activist local culture there, juxtaposed against a powerful historical presence of zapotec tradition”.
