Sandra Higgins presents solo exhibitions by distinguished Colombian painters Carlos Jacanamijoy and Maria de la Paz Jaramillo in May

Sandra Higgins is pleased to announce forthcoming solo exhibitions by distinguished Colombian painters Carlos Jacanamijoy (who appears above with Sandra in a photograph courtesy of Sandra Higgins) and Maria de la Paz Jaramillo. After two years of extensive research and travelling in Latin America, Sandra Higgins will present the first solo exhibitions in London of two key figures of the Colombian art scene as part of her art salon programme.

From the 13th of May to the 6th of June 2014 acclaimed painter Carlos Jacanamijoy (Colombia, 1964) will show a group of five recent paintings of medium and large formats. Over the last 20 years, the “Maestro Jaca” (Master Jaca), as he is known in Colombia, has steadily built a strong reputation based on his abstract paintings, which depict landscapes inspired by the Colombian tropical rainforest where he grew up. The surreal and oneiric quality of Jacanamijoy’s work is largely informed by the rites and spiritual beliefs of the Inga community, the indigenous ethnic group he belongs to, connecting ancient traditions with contemporary sensibilities. Jacanamijoy explores the questions of landscape and memory with vibrant colours and a shamanic view of nature, using native symbols to express a personal universe. His upcoming exhibition will offer an unique opportunity in London to get to know and enjoy his reputed body of work. Jacanamijoy has recently been the subject of amajor retrospective exhibition at MamBo, Bogota’s Museum of Modern Art. Included in this show will be several works from that exhibition, in addition to new works never shown before. For more information go to the Sandra Higgins website.

‘I am very interested in how we see things and relate them to their surroundings. I continue to develop thoughts and ideas around perception; using a small number of objects in the intimate space of the still-life table. The compositional elements of colour, line and shape create the space in the pictures’
