While the subject matter is historical, the colors are surprisingly modern. The saturation, simplification, and occasional exaggerated exposure make the images feel as if they have been passed through series of Photoshop filters. In some instances, like "Tenango (Rainbow)," the playful color reflects the original object-in this case, the vibrant textiles from the Otomi tribe in Mexico. But, in most cases, Trevino has altered the original colors of the artifact into bright, vivid paintings where the hue glows as if shining from a computer screen. This illusion is increased by the fact that Trevino painted them on matte Mylar (thin, frosty sheets of plastic) allowing light to literally shine through the work.
