Nicolás Gómez Echeverri

Born in 1984 in Bogotá, Colombia
Lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia

Through the exploration on different mediums—primarily painting and sculpture—, I explore codes to represent space’s sensorial and perceptive experience. In this sense, I work with objects and images that reveal the existing tension between the natural and the artificial, and the subjective experience related to science and language’s cataloguing and measuring schemes. In both my artistic and research work, I have delved in modern and contemporary art’s references to rural and urban landscape, as well as in the development and validity of abstraction.
