$1,800.00 - Collector Price
Available for 24 hours only and then they ship back to Oaxaca. We are very fortunate to have three pieces by Giovanni Melchor that just finished exhibiting at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum in Michigan as part of an feature on Oaxacan artistry called, “Folk Art from Oaxaca: Eight Artists, Eight Voices” These pieces represent a major evolution in the work of Giovanni and I tip my hat to his creative surreal / magical realism style interpretations. Giovanni Melchor is a talented artist who apprenticed under Jacobo and Maria Angeles. His work is hard to get. Unlike other artists who continue to replicate Jacobo and Maria’s famous designs, we like that Giovanni is using his talent to develop a unique style all his own. His pieces have great drawing designs, fluid painting technique and symmetry.
This piece entitled “Between Day and Night” features a very realistic deer head with piercing eyes – on its own the carving has a lot to offer in texture and form. Giovanni envisioned a whole fantastical forested world in the antlers with one side featuring the day and the other night. Light touches of mixed media – paper flowers and vines swirl around the horns with animal life mixed in. Very unique indeed.
