2011 - 2017
S ELNV A N D O encompasses several series of photographs and drawings in various materials, including graphite, mineral pigments, ink and mud recovered from Colombian and Brazilian rivers, on fabric, wood, cotton and photographic paper.
The Selvando installation, as well as the various series of drawings included in this project, correspond to the exercise of a kind of mourning that happened over a period of many years, as I witnessed how the riverbanks of the Meta River (located in the Colombia's eastern planes) became large areas of rice crops and livestock breeding. Many drawings
made at different times and places came together in a far-reaching project that I like to think as a form of mourning.
First exhibited in February, 2016 at LA Galería arte contemporáneo, Bogotá.
Individual or groups of pieces have been shown in group shows in Bogotá and other cities.
