Project Space Gallery exhibition Botanica Poetica showcases new work by Lucas Artist Fellows inspired by the varied and diverse plant life found in Montalvo Arts Center’s 175-acre public park.

Among the featured artists is Mexico-born Hector Dionicio Mendoza, currently based in Monterey, California. Mendoza’s mixed media practice, which includes sculpture and two-dimensional works, often combining the organic and the man-made and exploring a wide range of themes, including the everyday potentiality of catastrophe.

In this short video created by filmmakers Alexis Costanza and Pierce Leggin, Mendoza gives us a unique view into his working process as he describes how he created a new series of works on paper for Botanica Poetica, White Wilderness, while he was an Artist Fellow at the Lucas Artists Residency Program.
