Bochica, Gabriel Sierra
Oil and ink painting on gold leaf canvas.
He is interested in the contribution of art to the constitution of the Colombian national identity, the country from which he comes. From this double formation arise the questions that are at the heart of his plastic work. Through painting, drawing, and sculpture, his work is presented as symbolic restitution of the privileged place occupied by Native American civilizations and of the wealth that this heritage represents for their cultural heritage. It is a question of changing the way of seeing the tradition of knowledge in the American territory, of understanding that there are different knowledge and know-how and that it is transmitted by means far removed from Western conceptions.
A true aesthetic mixture, it associates naturalistic figuration with pre-Colombian painting techniques in search of a clean language that encompasses the richness of both worlds, not as a duality but as a dialogue.
