About The Work

In this mosaic, artist John Armleder explores the dual nature of gold. Popoxcomitl’s attractive and shiny aesthetic pays tribute to notions associated with the precious metal, such as the divine, the solar, and themagical. Yet the title name refers to a Central American pre-Hispanic culture that was ultimately ruined by the greed, oppression, and inequality caused by gold.
