Artist captures the essence of Chiapas in pictographic exhibition “Weaving Dreams”

Since her adolescence, Marlene Sánchez Guerrero showed interest in painting. Since then, she has dedicated herself to this art and currently exhibits her works, which she has created over many years. Her main focus has been mainly related to the Lacandona Jungle, located in the state of Chiapas. This exhibition will be available for several days at Musac.

The artist, now a woman expert in painting, presented an exhibition of the works she has done. Visitors will be able to appreciate her works within the facilities of the San Cristóbal de Las Casas Museum, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., from Tuesday to Sunday. Therefore, both citizens and visitors will have the opportunity to explore the exhibition and capture photographic memories.

In an interview, Marlene Sánchez Guerrero, plastic artist, shared that her interest in painting arose in her adolescence. She dedicated time to studying and practicing with various teachers in the field. Currently, she presents her exhibition to make herself known to the people of Mexico and the world, especially among the people of San Cristobal and tourists who visit the colonial city.

“I am a plastic artist. Today the inauguration of my painting exhibition called ‘Weaving Dreams’ took place. I am representing the textiles of the state of Chiapas, some characters and some elements to complete the event. I started painting as a teenager when I was 14 years old, but I matured and studied with different teachers to continue developing this technique. Now, I am exposing my work,” she noted.

The artist explained the meaning of the presence of a girl in one of her works. This girl represents a memory of her when she visited the Lacandon Jungle in the municipality of Ocosingo, one of the largest municipalities in Chiapas.

“For me, the young girl symbolizes the experience of listening to the songs of the quetzals. In fact, the work is called ‘The Song of the Quetzales’. The image portrays the wonderful jungle region in Chiapas. The exhibition is in the Museum, formerly the Municipal Palace of San Cristóbal, and will be available until January 23, 2024,” she concluded.
