For this year's iteration of Austin Studio Tour, the Flower Hill Foundation has invited Alfonso Huerta to display his art at Flower Hill. Huerta's paintings, prints and drawings combine various media, including egg tempura, oil, pastels, charcoal, and watercolor to depict a series of serene still life studies and portraits expressing the beauty and sensuality of everyday life with a distinctly Mexican soul. Originally from Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico, Alfonso studied painting and life drawing at the Academia de Arte Municipal de Ciudad Juarez and at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas in Mexico City. His paintings and drawings depict the lush and rich textures of his native Mazatlán with strong tropical flashes of color and surrealistic effects of saturated light and shadow.
