Masks relates to the Amerindian Indigenous cosmologies in two different ways. On one hand it investigates the geometric patterns of their arts as a religious and ritual motives that subtly connect the sacred and the everyday. On the other the leaves are of species that are important for the indians for different reasons:
There are plants that are important for their subsistence as the Bread-fruit trees or the Mandioca root, there's also poisonous plants that can be used fo hunting or for medicinal treatments as the Gravatá. You even have plants that are related to specific legends or histories as the Pé de Boi. Other have a ritualistic use as the red Urucum seeds.
The economic, medical, poetic or religious sides of life blend then together through the gold drawings made on the leaves, also a material keen to the occidental projections about the rainforest and its inhabitants.
On a broader sense, the works continue the investigation on geometry and materiality keen to Daniel Steegmann Mangrané. In this case creating mixture of two opposite materials in terms of status, and questioning topological ideas of surface, form, objecthood and drawing.
