About The Artwork

This series of circular engravings has at its center the representation of a nose ring found in Tumaco, Colombia made of platinum and gold centuries ago. "Millenary peoples left their memory engraved in their goldsmith pieces" reminds us the Arhuaco indigenous leader Kandymaku Busintana. Although we do not have written accounts of many of the peoples who have inhabited what is now known as Latin America, their memories are engraved in these goldsmith pieces, which we can understand and interpret as a record of their history. The metallic colors in these prints represent the minerals and precious metals that abound in Abya Yala and were essential to the goldsmith culture of its peoples.

I am a Colombian artist living in Barcelona. Through art I have been able to connect with the landscapes and culture of my ancestors. I re-imagine Latin American art through historical figures, legends, landscapes and symbology inspired by the iconography of pre-Hispanic goldsmith masters. I am inspired by the revival of historical memory, the wisdom of indigenous cosmovisions and nature. My work frequently transforms landscapes into relief engravings with metallic colors that represent the mineral richness of the earth. For the last four years I have been managing Casa Jaguar /, an art studio in Barcelona where I collaborate with other Colombian audiovisual artists with whom I share my interest in developing a visual language that integrates pre-Hispanic art with contemporary art.
