Luis Guzmán

Sobre el artista

Luis Guzmán lives and Works in Brussels, Belgium. He was born in Bogota in 1976.

He has two masters in visual arts and theory of arts and studied in the National University of Colombia.
He has held many individual exhibitions in Europe and Colombia including several colective exbihitions.
Moreover he has been honored with the Prix coup de coeur des amis de la Cambre, Brussels, Belgium in 2015.
For this Fair Luis Guzmán has brougth us this series called ¨Inner Life¨.
The artist uses natural charcoal in all the drawings, these 8 were specially selected from almost 30 works that the artist made for the series. We have the rest of the series in a folder here with Us.
Now we can explain a Little more about these specific Works.
The series is an extensive set of artworks, that explore and reflect the simple or curious life of humans, and allude to a certain spiritual life, that takes place inside ourselves, the light and the shadow constructing unique universes where landscapes, human figures and other elements that refer to a ritual character of the scenes are presented.
In most of the scenes the idea of the renaissance cube is present to define and open the virtual space and the metaphysical nature thereof, in such a way the observer is given a glimpse into a private world.
The lack of identity allows the observer to be part of the scenes. These parallel universes loaded with symbolic elements defy the laws of physics and place the viewer at the crossroads where they have to choose between dreams or nigthmares.
These visions drift between blurred borders of reallity and logic, spaces in memory adorned by absence and ritual that pose big questions about the human condition, each work a window that permits the entry of twin versions of perhaps the same life, representations that suggest sense and purpose.
