Eduardo Terrazas

b. 1936, Mexico

The works are bound together through the common interest in structure and tactility–themes that seem also to connect Eduardo Terrazas' work as an artist and as an architect. Terrazas got his broad breakthrough in 1968 when he designed the visual identity for the Olympic Games in Mexico.

Terrazas’ art exists in a constant dialogue with the society that surrounds him. Like this work that applies a technique that has been used for centuries by the indigenous Mexican tribe Huichol. Wooden panels are covered with Campeche wax into which threads of yarn are laid to compose a pattern made by Terrazas. Terrazas works in series where he explores the possible variations of a chosen structure, which seem to become indefinite when lines and colours are juxtaposed.
