Episode 20: Interview with Catalina Delgado Trunk

by Eiteljorg Museum | Jun 06, 2012
This week Tamara Winfrey Harris speaks with artist-in-residence Catalina Degado Trunk. While Catalina Delgado Trunk's academic art training focused on painting and drawing, her current work is rooted in the folk arts of her native Mexico. Catalina integrates traditional Mexican art forms–such as public ofrendas (temporary altars) and papel picado (cut paper)–with non-traditional or unusual themes that reflect today’s society. Trunk talks about how most of her works of art consist of altars or cut paper images that echo mythical, spiritual, and religious iconography or honor historic and contemporary personalities. In this episode she talks about her work and the Mexican celebration of Día de los Muertos.
