BACCHANALIA ARTIST STATEMENT FROM RF. ALVAREZ:
I have continued the work of blending references to antiquity and Meso American cultural artifacts in this newest series, titled Bacchanalia. For these works, I have chosen to celebrate – abundance, fertility, and summertime warmth. I want to see people dancing and loving. I want to express the nostalgic solitude of slow summer days.
I have drawn much inspiration from two sources: Chac-mool sculptural styles and Roman frescos in Pompeii. Somehow the confluence of these two images – reclining figures, one a receptacle for religious offerings, one a depiction of landed lifestyles – has brought me to bodies that are both lounging and receiving, celebrating and contemplative.
