Artist Statement -

As an artist I produce concepts, associations and links related to the new informalism, conceptualism and experimental art. Social analysis and criticism, current cultural and local elements, symbols and chronicles, makes abstraction even more abstract. Most of my work represents my reaction to the chaos in which we find ourselves, both global and personal, from the view point of a Colombian, from a society where this has been an everyday reality over many years, but who has the perspective of having lived, studied and worked in North America and the Far East. As such, my art resonates, graphically and emotionally, with recent events Bataclan,Paris-Orlando,Florida which have brought this reality home to us. Most of my work questions the actuality of the world we live in, and are forced to accept, with its chaos, violence, corruption power-structures, power-seeking, wars, extremes of wealth and poverty, famines and excessive consumption, egocentricity and generosity, hatreds and loves, and its prejudices and openness it also questions what the future has store for us, if any future there be. Paintings, sculptures, photography, installations and assemblages show a close relationship with my personal, architectural and urban experience. I use industrial paint, raw canvases, plexiglas, aluminium sheet, wood, paper and other materials applying texture, wrinkles and perforations, My artwork is very physical my purpose as an artist is making consciences and hearts react. I personalize my kind of grunge or raw style of work with a conceptual emphasis on social and spiritual opposites seeking through the language of transparency. I have worked in art, architecture and graphic design in the U.S.,Canada, China and my native Colombia. Presently I work in Bogota and travel to London frequently. Less
