Portrait of the Artist by Edgar Zuniga.
Wood Carving.


Excerpt from a speech by the Artist to the conference 'For A Creative Synthesis' at the Centro Cultural Ixtapalapa, Mexico City:
"I create hieroglyphs for my own satisfaction and personal
pleasure, with which I sustain an intimate conversation...
It also gives me a certain satisfaction to share my scribblings with those who make the effort to interpret the symbols and participate in my conversation...I am interested in creating visual communication...with themes that are passionate for me. I want to create work that provokes questions, not answers, and that produces ambiguity in order that the
search continues."
