Mexico provides a surreal surrounding for painters to experience new visions. Tichenor's artistic conceptions are not European. The artist makes an analogy about past practices of shamans and unexplainable phenomena in her art work. Her artwork glows in a radiating way that is un-natural. Tichenor's revealing artwork lets us see ordinary human beings unmasked. The artist also incorporates many figures from Mesoamerican myth and folklore. Orenstein describes the art as surrealistic. The dimensions of Tichenor's artwork are made up of the evolution of human beings toward clear vision for a harmonious world. The artwork transmits to the viewer an ability to interpret fate and the cosmos. The author connects this vision to later developments in ecofeminism.
