You will select two artists from the list below and analyze at least one or more artworks that each has created, specifically commenting on their use of Ancient Latin American imagery/symbols and influences. You may select more than one artwork to discuss if you want to talk about themes that are present in multiple examples of their work. You can search the web for information about the artist and their works but please include the citation at the end of the analysis. Wikipedia is ok.
It is important to consider the questions; What aspects of Ancient Latin American art have influenced this artist? Or how and why has this artist incorporated or responded to Ancient Latin American imagery in their work? In other words, what is the artist trying to say? How does the artist relate their own cultural identity to Ancient Latin American cultural practices, images, symbols, materials, shapes, etc?
Essays should be 350-500 words (can go over word limit)
