CLAUDIO OJEDA MORALES and his wife, TERESA GONZÁLEZ MARÍN (San Antonio Arrazola)

Claudio creates wood-carved figures distinguished by their extraordinary stature or texture (or both). He is a highly articulate man who comfortably delves into his inner world to achieve a unique combination of philosophical, intellectual thought and sensuality in his art. He and his wife Teresita collaborate on and co-sign their pieces. Claudio does the carving and Teresita the painting, which is considered as integral to their artistry as the carving. They both regard Teresita’s special techniques as an inheritance to be passed along to their two sons. Figures range from jaguars to armadillos, “nahuals” (figures combining human and animal features) peacocks, toucans, parrots, and iguanas.
