PARADOXES Carlos Alarcon’s most recent series, “Pair/adoxes,” consists of small and extremely detailed drawings that come in logical and illogical pairings. They grew out of his sketchbook, as subconsciously drawn images that always resulted in some sort of pair. These sketches began as an escape from his other subjects, which were anguish and violence. Sketches that would take one hour to complete turned into ferociously detailed works that could take from 5 to 6 days to finish and required the use of a magnifying glass. For Alarcon, the notion of relationships and pairings is prevalent throughout the series. Although these works are an escape from his other series relating to violence and anguish, he draws upon subjects that produce anguish within himself: his dislike of animals. While he loves animals aesthetically, Alarcon has an animal phobia, yet includes them in these pairings. Thus, one can like and dislike the same subject, resulting yet again, in another odd pairing or relationship. Combined images include the eater and the eaten, the dog and the television, and the baby elephant and the mother elephant. For this proposal, there are animals of the water and those of land, those that can escape the water, and those that cannot. Does water, which is fundamental for the whale’s movement, become its weakness when the penguin escapes to land? Carlos Alarcon’s play on images questions the odd nature of relationships and the ambiguity that lies within them. Alarcon has an undergraduate degree in Visual Arts from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, and a Masters in Ephemeral Architecture, Events, and Staging from the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña in Barcelona. He has exhibited his work across Latin America, the United States, France and Spain.

TIMELINE SERIES Enlisting photography and video to turn common realities into his own fiction, Mario Arroyave incorporates the use of repetition as a metaphor for time and space. His “Timeline Series” puts into evidence the possibilities of creation through digital photography. Through an exercise of observation, these images capture movements over a prolonged period of time. The artist then synthesizes them in order to document what appears to be one coherent instant in an image. Ripples of time and space collide in order to present the viewer with an alternate reality, one almost real, yet not necessarily so. Mario Arroyave obtained degrees in Systems Engineering, Advertising and Film, in Costa Rica, Colombia and Argentina. He works full time as a video and photographic artist and is one of Colombia’s most promising young artists. He has had five individual exhibits in Colombia and participated in local art fairs. Art Wynwood 2015 is his first international incursion.

FEMALE VOICES Searching for a female voice, Carolina Convers’ works transcend from the classical world to that of family photo albums. Harmoniously uniting the medium of painting with that of prints that represent images from the artist’s memories, Convers uses small stains and brushstrokes to flood traditional prints of female protagonists. Despite these images being a part of her life, the works are not entirely of an intimate nature, nor are they part of an interior search. Although Carolina speaks with a voice found in a past where feminine voices where felt with force, it is a voice that is nonetheless her own. For though it speaks of a memory, this memory in itself is not a clear entity. Instead, it is very similar to the result of Carolina’s work, malleable and flexible as the acetate upon which she works. Just as memories are repetitive and collapse one onto the other, so are the constantly repeated female bodies represented in her works, fragmented and composed of many remnants. With unrealistic colors reminiscent of a dream world, Carolina Convers effortlessly expresses the lingering and perplexing message of a memory. A REFLECTION ON LANDSCAPE Landscape cannot be conceived without an observer, be it individual or collective, who will define the physical and evident forms of geography through his own experience; settings that will become symbolic centers composed of each individual’s thoughts, aspirations, ideas and emotions. Landscape is both a physical reality and the cultural representation each person makes of it. It is the external and visible appearance of a specific terrestrial surface, be it water, horizon or earth, as well as the individual and social perception each person has of it, which in the end results in its fictitious definition POOLS POOLS For Carolina Convers, the expressive use of color is both a poetic gesture and a cathartic one. She works with photography and industrial enamels on acetate prints in order to

LIGHT ATMOSPHERES Creatively making use of the technological resources and light and a certain duality to express himself through his art, Aníbal Gomescásseres commits his work to alternate realities using a game of irony and sobriety and observing from a reflective point of view according to the context, and of course, following the intention behind each piece. In his series, Light Atmospheres, Gomescasseres invokes the idea of person-space. Using lightboxes, he depicts spaces in solitude, void spaces in which only the warmth of light can enter. The human figure disappears and a gasp of sobriety is displayed. In doing so, the artist engenders a feeling of vain spaces that credit their essence to their very own value: the weight of the elements is omitted in the composition, creating an introspection in the intimacy of the spectator. Adaptation from the text by Paola Paez.
Max Steven Grossman
Biography : CAREER Max Steven Grossman was born in Barranquilla, Colombia in 1971. He originally studied engineering and graduated from the University of Philadelphia in 1994. Soon after he discovered his passion in life for photography. In 2000, Max Steven graduated from New York University and the International Center of Photography with a Master of Arts specializing in photography. The two diverse studies of engineering and the arts have helped to mold the creative photography of Grossman into a study of reality and imagination. Max Steven Grossmans photographs have been exhibited around the world including -Beatriz Esguerra art in Bogota, Colombia, -Museum of Modern Art in Cartagena, Colombia, -Museum of Modern Art in Barranquilla, Colombia, -Art Wynwood in Miami. –Art Southampton in Long Island, NY. -ArteBA in Buenos Aires,Argentina. He has also exhibited extensively in Fairs and Foundations internationally such as Switzerland, Panama and Spain to name a few. Detailed Description :
BOOKSCAPES In his Bookscapes series, artist Max-Steven Grossman creates libraries that exist only in his photographs. The purpose of these works is to register bookshelves from various backgrounds, reorganize them through digital procedures, and create a vast archive of ideas, concepts and titles that any connoisseur of a specific field of study, should have. The relationship that each viewer develops with these libraries is completely personal and occurs exclusively in the realm of his imagination. Like Walter Benjamin, who once narrated his personal friendship with each of his books while unpacking them from a trunk, Grossman creates a work where each individual will develop a personal dialogue with the image. This dialogue will originate from their past readings, their desire to read the unread, the admiration for the sea of knowledge contained therein, or the fear of facing the great unknown. However, what is truly important is that the viewer-image relationship is one of contemplation and awe before the impossibility of accessing all the real yet unattainable knowledge presented in these photographs.

Edgar Martins
Biography : EDGAR MARTINS Portugal, 1977 THE ACCIDENTAL THEORIST Shot largely on the same set of beaches in Portugal over a period of two years, the imagery of The Accidental Theorist is a series of moments that have become independent of causation or purpose. This landscape is familiar yet imaginary. It is full of stillness and silence yet the pervasive tranquility is paradoxically not calming but disturbing and incongruous. It is marked by the sense that things are forever unreachable. All that represents the ambience of a holiday beach is missing. We long for the signs and symptoms of life to reimpose themselves upon the social fabric of this place. Shot with an analogue, large format camera and making use of long exposures, these images are all about temporal experience. The beach is rendered as little more than a proscenium awaiting some event. Found elements underscore an ambiguity in these images between the composed and the contingent. (Text taken from www.edgarmartins.com) Born in Évora, Portugal, Martins grew up in Macau. He completed an MA in Photography and Fine Art at the Royal College of Art (London). His work is represented internationally in high-profile collections including V&A (UK), the National Media Museum (UK) and the Dallas Museum of Art (USA), to name a few. Martins represented Macau at the 54th Venice Biennale. Awards include the New York Photography Award, the BES Photo Prize, the SONY World Photography Award, International Photography Award, and a nomination to the Prix Pictet. Detailed Description :

Cali 450 Años, Editori Detailed Description :
AN AMAZING WAY OF LOOKING Daniela Mejia's paintings are testimony to an amazing way of looking. Faces, objects and landscapes come to the canvas without concessions, perfect in form and highly detailed, thanks to an impeccable technique, evoking the expert and delicate strokes of the ancient Flemish. Mejia does not intend to express an inner vision, or make a poetic interpretation of the world around her; it is evident that in her way of looking at things, reality is more wonderful than any fantasy of a personal nature. What is landscape without a human perception? Does landscape exist without an observer? Incorporating people as part of her landscapes and the interaction of both become the central theme of Mejia's latest exhibit. In her paintings she shows how human presence is so powerful that it becomes the focal point of her compositions. In this new artistic series, landscape is no longer the main character; it is now the backdrop for human presence. In the end, the artist concludes that landscape and people coexist, and give each other meaning.
Carlos Narino

Gabriel Ortega
Detailed Description :
Gabriel Ortega’s work is based on icons that are significant to him, either because they represent a connection to his inner child or they are a way to portray his ideals, opinions and thoughts. He depicts emblematic art icons, comic book characters and super heroes who comment on society, religion and politics in a humorous yet profound manner. In his compositions, Ortega juxtaposes good and evil incorporating Tintin, a young and adventurous Belgian character, alongside other renowned figures such as Batman, Frida Kahlo or Che Guevara. Tintin’s innocence is confronted with psychologically loaded characters that in no other context would be seen together. Ortega’s technique mixes very precise acrylic and oil painting with cold porcelain figurines, perfectly illustrating the icons he interprets. Ortega lives and works in Italy and has exhibited his work internationally in Spain, the UK, Italy, New York and Colombia. Diesel, Coca Cola and Moet Chandon in Spain are but a few of the collections where his work is found.

In his series "Memories As Metaphors,"Rivero-Cintra juxtaposes large fruits and vegetables with people who travel on them, the artist invites us to question our perceptions of reality and to act out what he calls a “mental displacement.” He bids the viewer to challenge common notions of displacement, to look beyond the physical and to peer inward and reflect upon oneself. For Rivero-Cintra, a mental displacement is one that occurs within the mind, through our thoughts, visions, readings, dreams, and longings. For Juan Carlos Rivero-Cintra art and its expressions can serve as a form of escapism, from one’s one history, memories, truths, and reality. Born, raised, and educated in Cuba, Rivero-Cintra now lives in Colombia; both countries have histories and realities that many people at times wish to evade. His work, however, touches upon mental displacement as a form of escapism that can apply to a variety of people under a diverse set of circumstances.

Verso Artecontemporanea, Turin, Italy IRAN diVERSO: Bl Detailed Description :
My artwork is a combination of drawing, painting and sculpture that describes a place that is as much an idea as a physical location. The compositions embody liminality; that is, they create a constant experience of sensations that exist at the limen, or edge of perception. To bring about this state, I have removed all possible distractions. Narrative and figuration, even figure and ground, have been excised from the delicate combinations of squares, rectangles, and floating lines. I work with a variety of materials, such as slate, wood, thread and wax, in addition to paint, to produce a “painting” with a sculptural, three-dimensional quality. For the past fifteen years I have devoted my attention to a very tiny area—an area that comprises the physicality of a line and functions as the transitional space between two entities. I view the ‘line’ as empty space without an agenda or allegiance; it is neither here nor there. I have found that by paying attention to this tiny, subtle, yet detailed space, one is forced to turn away from the outside world and focus inward on one’s own interior space. As art historian, Peter Lodermeyer, described the work in a catalogue essay, “You have to look closely, as close as possible, then steadily until you can see the seeing itself. Watch yourself as you look in order to perceive.”

Carol Young
Biography : Carol Young, born in Uruguay, has been living and making art in Colombia since the 1980’s. Using ceramic as her primary medium, Carol’s installations and sculptures transcend standard perception of the material, creating work that is unique, challenging and beautiful. Her recent investigation explores the realms of memory, history and our conceptions of paper. Working from an intricate network of memory, both personal and collective, Carol explores their unexpected influences: how we perceive the world and how we interact with others. Carol Young’s installations evoke these subliminal memories through dialogue with the emptiness and freshness of a blank page. Drawing on an image that may refer to an ancient library composed of paper and parchment, her work conjures up the sign-filled archive of the many individual moments of experience -- unknown and hidden information that yearns to be classified, reviewed and studied. Carol Young has shown her work throughout Colombia and Latin America. Her work has been exhibited in museums and she has received numerous honors and prizes. This coming November, Carol Young has been invited to be part of the Latin American Gala and Auction at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and honor given to outstanding

Over the last decade, Elsa Zambrano’s work has been characterized by the detail in her technique and the act of collecting. In her recent series, her boxes contain objects that reproduce art history masterpieces. Her investigation, however, is not about these works, but about making them malleable and ordinary. Zambrano collects and recycles commercial images of art's masterpieces to produce her works, giving these masterpieces a parallel life, quite distant from the references we normally hold in our brain. Zambrano has gathered museum post cards for years, and compliments them with objects found in gift shops, stores and random places, that contribute to compose her sceneries. The objective of this action is to involve popular culture as a mechanism to possess and collect of imagery.
