Bogotá (Colombia), 1981

My current practice is generated from an investigation spread over the problem of evil, the wide-ranging conceptions and concerns that the word evil has raised in the human being as well as the diverse ways of approach it as a complex and endless subject matter. Through a practice that embraces the use of different media such as photographs, drawings and text-based works, I develop projects that intend to talk and refer to the concept of evil, as an exploration from various perspectives which focuses this concern generally as the starting point.

Currently, I am developing a new body of work influenced by the dialogue between film noir and the sensationalist media, and how they manipulate the idea of reality and fiction.
