“We [project assistant – Harmonie Begon] made soft and continuous shapes milled with CNC technology contrasted with handmade painting done by immersion in colored water,” Hernández said. “This technique of painting allows to achieve an interesting texture of intersections and transparency made by layers of color that resemble the plumage of birds.”

The three minimalistic decorative figures include a toucan, hummingbird, and Mexican quetzal, all of which can be seen flying around Mexico.
