About Jhonathan

“My practice is a constant reconstruction of the memory, not only seeing this as an act of remembering but as an ever-changing process of the materials with which I create (as a living memory the painting is reshaped in the mind of the artist) I point out the importance of colour and the act of painting within the Colombian rural population, where the value of painting lies more in its functionality than in the very concept of art-making.

 

I take formal components of Colombian villages’ architectures and the logic these follow as inheritance throughout history, reflecting on the communities, their traditions, their relationship with decorative aesthetics and different socio- cultural issues including armed conflict, exclusion and poverty.”
