The aim of this series of works which the author defines as “portals” is to induce an inner journey to the viewer in different stages. Each work, each image is a gateway to an experience, a different vibration. The step through each of these portals intends to originate a reorganization and transformation inside the observer, just as the sand mandalas of Tibetan Buddhists seek to attain an intense concentration and complete absorption of the attention, as a momentary way out of temporality.

The initial creating process of these works is partly inspired by the culture, art and decorative designs of the Wixárika people, better known as Huichols, a people settled in the Sierra Madre Occidental of Jalisco, Mexico, since ancient times. Thereon this basis of creation and using different digital tools and programs, the author has generated different layers and levels which are interlaced with each other to create these images. The end result can be understood as an updated digital revision of the Wixárika art, in which providentially appear sacred geometric patterns that can also be found in other ancient cultures, such as Hindu and Buddhist mandalas, which are used to represent the forces governing the universe and serve as a support for meditation.

The works are reproduced on lambda photo print under 5 mm acrylic glass. Limited edition of only five copies of each work, each one in a different size: 120×120 cm, 100×100 cm, 70×70 cm, etc.
