Leonardo RAMOS

 

Project Space

July 28 - September 5, 2016

 

When art and science displace religion as a source of spiritual effort, the figures who profess this new spirit become avant-garde artists and scientists by transforming the world. In these spiritual movements towards science and the arts, we can establish the relationship between the One and the many. Within this approach, the unit is the center.

Geometría y Abstracción

 

Gallery

May 19 - june 17, 2016

 

In the early twentieth century, Abstraction in Europe had become the alternative tradition in painting and sculpture as a response to the expansion of Realism. Wanting to represent the world in a mimetic manner was no longer a fundamental search in art and it was believed, rather, that art should build an autonomous visual language highlighting chromatic, formal and structural aspects.

Carlos SALAZAR ARENAS

"Filatelia y numismática"

 

Espacio Proyectos

May 19 - june 17, 2016

 

Carlos Salazar Arenas (Bogotá, 1973) takes images from the media, transforms them and gives them new meanings. Thanks to both digital media and physical distribution, Salazar has built over time a personal archive of images drawn from reality, marked by a few specific events that have affected the international and local scenes. In his most recent project entitled Filatelia y numismática, Salazar returns to a personal hobby that dates back to his childhood: collecting coins, bills and stamps.

Lina SINISTERRA

"El silencio del color"

 

1st Floor Gallery

April 14 - May 13, 2016

 

Why do I paint? Since I ran out of words and am always perplexed at this life that amazes me, for me, painting is a way to live twice.   If words are pure existentialism, painting is urgency: the silent word. What there is to say has no name or image. This is what forces me; I mean, for me painting is the petrification of pure subjectivity, of what no longer is, of what was. Camus's words when he said "to create it is to live twice” can be clearly understood here.

María Cristina CORTES

"Desmadre"

 

2nd Floor Gallery

April 14 - May 13, 2016

 

Since the beginning of her career, Maria Cristina Cortes has dealt with the subject of landscape and has been addressing the destruction of nature at the hands of man for a while. Already in Chambas (1998 - 2001), there were floating objects in her paintings in sometimes murky and polluted water. In more recent works such as Rastrojal (2008) and Quebrantos (2010), half-burned logs and charred tree trunks have also made an appearance.

Sebastián CAMACHO

"c a p a s"

 

Project Space

April 14 - May 13, 2016

 

There has been a layered thought since the invention of bound books: to access information that is assumed as continuous we must turn each sheet, one after another, to generate a complete image that is spread on each page. Unlike papyrus, which involves a continuum of reading to the right or left on the roll, the book maintains one unit in each sheet, devoid of all meaning without its kin. Or rather, the partiality of each of the sheets in relation to the story as a whole makes us think that a page of a book is always both fragment and whole, depending on how it is read. In recent years, this situation has changed dramatically with the invention of the Internet because of the transformation of forms of reading which also work as layers of information discontinuously depending on the relationship that the user has with the platform. An Internet search, either by text or image (still or moving), implies the recognition of a code other than a book because the notion of what comes first and what comes after has a different relationship with "depth" even though it retains the conventions of reading (what is ahead is always later).

MAESTROS

Galería

December 3 to January 29, 2016

 

The plurality of Colombian art is evident in this exhibition, which shows, through the works of different artists, the avant-garde trends that influenced the history of the visual arts in our country and transformed them dramatically nationwide. Genre works, landscapes and still lifes were the protagonists par excellence for decades in our country. From there, and with the support and guidance of teachers in the schools that had, at some point in their lives, direct access to the Western trends of the beginning of the century, Colombian art started to gain more autonomy, consistency and vigor. The regulating principles of the so-called twentieth century avant-gardes, such as impressionism, cubism, geometric and expressionist abstraction, pop, surrealism, hyperrealism, expressionism and figurative art adapted to our culture and our needs for experimentation, leading to a multiplicity of proposals that, in most cases, enjoyed great recognition both nationally and internationally.

Freda SARGENT

Project Space

December 3 to January 29, 2016

 

Her subtle palette of bright colors builds enigmatic spaces that recall dreams, fables or visions of her childhood. The blue in different shades, the cheerful and festive yellow and the skillfully handled reflections of light are all in part the record of what Sargent sees. Her extraordinary sensitivity leads her to discover the fragility of things and the transience of the moment, which, through the charm of her stroke and gesture, develop a language closer to figurative art that has a major interest in the composition, light, and color. As she says it, "I paint what I see, I paint my life”, and Freda therefore takes elements of landscape, stops nature and immortalizes characters.

José Horacio MARTÍNEZ

"Travesias"

 

Galería 1er Piso

November 5 - 28, 2015

 

As charts for a journey on the verge of setting sail, one that promises to lead us to inhospitable domains, the paintings of José Horacio Martinez engage us in his spatiality so quickly that it is difficult to stop looking at and inhabiting them after we have faced them. A glance is enough to enter. But not to leave.
