About “La Familia”

Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita is celebrated for the warm welcome with which it greets guests, and for its family-friendly ambiance. Paying tribute to both of these values is the new monumental bronze sculpture, “La Familia”, located at the entry of the Resort. Created by artist Alicia Bueno, it is the most recent addition to Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita’s inspiring collection of public art for guests to enjoy.

La Familia is a welcoming piece that immediately conveys the sentiment that this is a place where families come to reconnect. “The spirit of Punta Mita is about a communion between people, spirit and place,” says John O’Sullivan, General Manager of the resort. “La Familia embodies this spirit of family possibilities.”

For artist Alecia Bueno, the Four Seasons environment proved to be an inspiration in itself, not only due to the exquisite views and surroundings – which she refers to as “the best office anyone could wish for” – but also for the overall feeling of happiness that she feels exudes from everyone there, starting with the staff. “It is a great benefit to have such beauty and abundance surrounding me to be creative,” she states. Of the La Familia sculpture, Alecia says she created it to be “round, like a welcoming embrace”.

La Familia is among the more than thirty works of art on display throughout Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita. Each has been specifically located amidst the gracious grounds and tropical natural environment to enhance both the art itself, as well as its setting. The Resort has made a commitment to this public art program, viewing it as a logical extension to the omnipresent natural beauty of Punta Mita.

About the Artist:

Originally from Mexico City, Alecia Bueno has been immersed in art and culture since she was a child, as art was always present in her home. At 16, she started taking lessons and working alongside Mexican artist Jorge Alarcón, renowned for his work in figurative modern, in his studio. There, she also began leading painting and sculpting workshops for children. A scholarship to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence took her to Italy, where she had the privilege working on the sculptures of La Scala de Milán, one of the most famous Opera theatres in the world. She returned to Mexico – first to Valle de Brava and Cuernavaca, near her home city – where she started both schools and galleries. In 1999 she moved to Puerto Vallarta, where she has remained since, exhibiting in a number of the fine art galleries located in this acclaimed art community, and where she has her atelier.

Alicia has participated in numerous private and collective exhibitions in Mexico and abroad. Her work includes sculptures in bronze, marble, stone, wood, metal and glass reliefs. Along with selling her own pieces, Alecia also does private commissions, of all sizes and materials. She has done a number of custom family sculptures, creating a work of legacy art for her clients.

Her smaller sculptures and other works of art are featured at The Boutiques of Punta Mita, located adjacent to the portico entry of Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita.
