The world is surrounded by agave-shaped stars in card 26 of Marina Pallares' exclusive interpretation of Mexico's lotería. Tequila is distilled from the agave plant, and exported throughout the world. Mexico's lotería is a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional images. The loteria made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. 'I grew up in Jalisco, known for the production of tequila from agave plants, and as a child I used to play lotería all the time. These two facts inspired me to create the 'Tequila Lotto' series,' confides Pallares, who credits the influence of Leopoldo Méndez and José Guadalupe Posada in her work. She masters aquafortis and aquatint etching techniques to create this eloquent composition.

Born in 1980 in the Mexican state of Jalisco, I have always enjoyed painting and drawing. All through school, starting with nursery, I enjoyed art classes the most. I think painting has always been my destiny, because throughout my life, certain unexplainable things keep happening that lure me to the path of the fine arts.

When I was 13 years old, I began to paint more frequently. I've been dedicated to painting, drawing and printing since 2000, and in 2004 I graduated in Visual Arts with a concentration in painting. I have taken numerous courses on a variety of techniques, including oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, encaustic, graphite, charcoal and prints. I have studied with renowned Mexican artists, such as Alejandro Camacho, Enrique Ruíz Rojo, Jose Luis Malo and Gustavo Alvarado.

"I have exhibited my work individually and collectively in Jalisco, San José del Cabo and Hamburg, Germany.

"I define myself as an eternal seeker. I don't like labeling myself or my work, so as soon as someone else tries to place me in a category or classification, I rebel and I change. I'm not a 'rebel without a cause,' it's just that it's early in my career and it would be dangerous, professionally speaking, to label me already.

"I enjoy having the biggest array of instruments available to express myself. In other words, I adapt techniques according to the theme that I'm working on. I am very careful about my work, and I don't suit mainstream contemporary art because I think it is distant from the viewer. Let's just say it seems to suit only the few who can understand complex concepts.

"I prefer to paint so that the majority of the people can understand and appreciate my work, and that my technique draws their attention. On the other hand, I don't want it to seem like something improvised that anyone could do. My focus is making works of art of good technical quality, with a concept, with feeling, and as creatively original as possible.

"I like realism, surrealism, impressionism and most other '-isms.' My favorite artists include Vincent Van Gogh, Remedios Varo, Leopoldo Méndez, Picasso, Francisco Corzas, Rufino Tamayo, Gustav Klimt, and Toulouse Lautrec. And, my favorite techniques include linocut, oils, graphite and mixed media.

"Most of my themes revolve around people and ordinary activities such as drinking coffee, riding a bike or dancing. Although sometimes I can be more complicated and express my dreams, my feelings, and other personal issues.

"Fine Arts to me symbolize the engine that makes me get up every morning."
