Viva La Mujer (Medium, 2013)

Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza
13″ x 18″
6-Color handmade screenprint, Cougar Heavyweight Archival Paper, Printed in San Leandro, 2013

This collaboration mixes Melanie’s drawing of a Xicana with a pattern I pieced together from a Toltec stone stamp created about 3,000 years ago. This mix of ancient and new brings together printmakers across generations, the stamp pattern used was one of many that were created to print on fabric and paper.
