The baroque was transformed into an apparatus of control and the art style by excellence, and the Spanish empire and the Catholic Church brought it to the Americas as an ideology of power and subjugation. The art style was exceeded by religious and political perception during the Spanish colony in Mexico, and by extension, in Latin America. Dilucidacion Barroca is an art project that aims to understand the physical intertwined structure and the activity of oppression inherent in the baroque as exemplified in the façades, atriums and interior designs of cathedrals and churches during colonial Mexico. Using wood waste, Dilucidación Barroca is a sculptural construction to position the pristine baroque design developed during the Mexican colony, in juxtaposition with the rough edges of wood waste in my sculptures. The goal is to unravel and identify the ideology behind baroque from its twisted imagery, and unfolding while critically looking at Mexican history and culture and its impact on contemporary society. Also, the sculptures represent an allegory of wasted wood in reference to the remains of Hernán Cortés’ sunken ships on the Mexican coast and used to fabricate brigantines to invade Mexico-Tenochtitlan.
