X Marks the Spot

A look at Pancho Jiménez ’93 and his historically inspired sculptures.

Inspired by ancient art and architecture of Mexico, Pancho Jiménez ’93 works with big shapes—such as a series inspired by enormous Olmec heads—covered with details cast in ceramic molds: baby doll faces, theatre masks, teddy bears, typewriters, ballet slippers, pumpkins, chariot wheels. He had his first solo show at the Triton Museum in the city of Santa Clara last fall.

And curators from a number of California museums took note and purchased some pieces for their collections: You’ll now find his work in the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, the Autry Museum of the American West in Los Angeles, as well as the Triton Museum itself. Jiménez is a senior lecturer in studio art at SCU. Explore his work in the Edward M. Dowd Art and Art History Building.
