De la Barrera’s mountains become geometric. His trees become abstracted forms in which only sparse leaves denote their organic nature. Pastels and his vision transform the landscape into something festive, dynamic and luminous - where forms and colors are at times aggressive yet accurately represent the abrupt and rough character of the Mixteco landscape.
