The hypnotic and meditative patterns found within his paintings ar ebased upon pre-Aztec images, Mexican tiles, and purely geometric and optical patterns. The secodn edition of Arreguin's book, Patterns of Dreams and Nature, was published in 2007 by University of Washington Press. The National Academy of Sciences exhibited his work in 1996.
