I am a Colombian artist and writer who works in video, text, sound, and installation. My work
seeks to reconstruct, recuperate, question, and re-articulate a series of collective historical
memories in Latin America and the United States.
The subjects of my paintings are people and the composition of objects. The human figure in
painting enters a different dimension. I transform appearances and reinvent these in the layers of
color, are simultaneously real and detached.
Using the processes and aesthetics of weaving, I create sculptures and installations on textiles'
relationship to architecture. I use building materials like concrete and marble, as well as rope and
thread, to underscore that relationship.
Luisa Valderramaâ€™s work explores organic materiality, formalist composition, self-reflection and
how things relate to the land through a combination of mixed media sculpture, installation,
painting, and video.
