Catalina Jaramillo Quijano creates visual narratives and directs them through various media to establish a bridge between fiction and autobiography; she evokes images from literature, philosophy, mythological symbolism, and obsolete doctrines, transforming them into a paradox where humor, cynicism, and allegorical distortion begin to tell her unique collection of stories.

"This quest proposes a game where start and end fall under the same category: the start of something indicates that it ends at some point, and the end almost always represents a rebirth. The journey begins from within, where I look at myself and recount those memories that were breaks within a particular time: the end of childhood, the beginning of love, where a certain story began and ended. The tone of the drawings tries to generate a tension between reality and fiction, unfolded images of the subconscious that recreate a personal mythology"
