Miriam Martinez, Calor De Noviembre
…A lot of my work, actually most of my work is inspired by it. It is celebrated on November the 1st and 2nd. Every year I try to come up with a different “Catrina” painting that celebrates this festivity.
Catrinas are a common character/symbol in Dia de los Muertos, she’s the goddess of the festival, the “Lady of the Dead.” This year’s Catrina by Miriam is HUGE, I mean look at it. You can see how Miriam has a way with skeletons, not unlike Mike Egan’s, that convey all the semi-winking horror (the stitched eyes!) of the festival itself. See also her Marias, below.
