OVERVIEW WORK 2019 – 2022
INSTALLATIONS & PROJECTS
Project Ambivalences in Red
Brief Description Ambivalences in Red was born as a search around the burden produced by the overload of information to which we are exposed in the contemporary world. Art is not a means to explain or expose preconceived truths, but a process of aesthetic investigation that can surprise the artist himself with unexpected findings. ‘Ambivalencias en rojo’ is a
series of monochrome red paintings all 120 x 200 cm meant to be exhibited together.
Exhibition La Balsa Art Gallery, Bogotá, Colombia.
Project STOER (Tough)
Brief Description STOER (tough) reflects on the subject of gender and identity in a subtle and humorous way. The purpose of the artwork is to generate awareness and acceptance regarding these topics. It also encourages you to think about the actual meaning and implication of the word STOER (‘tough’) nowadays.
