Tino Rodriguez (Mexican-American)
Xochipilli’s Ecstatic Universe, 2004

Immersed from youth in the Mexican oral storytelling tradition, and first exposed to art through the images of saints and angels in Catholic churches, Tino Rodriguez paints works of exuberant passion. Androgyny, complex beauty, the mythical, and the magical enmesh themselves in what are often described as postmodern fairy tales. His surrealist images embrace dualities and expound on the complexities of sexuality, spirituality, and human transformation in the cycle of life.

In Xochipilli’s Ecstatic Universe, a self-portrait, Rodriguez creates a vision of the Aztec Flower Prince, patron god of the arts and pleasure. In one small space, he pays respect to Frida Kahlo, totemic imagery, Hindu deities, reincarnation, and the coming of spring.

Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, our 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
