Carlos Rojas - Retrospective
Carlos Rojas (* 1933 Facatativá, Colombia. + 1997 Bogotá.) is one of the central figures of abstract artistic creation in Colombia and one of the artists who defined the course of abstract art in Latin America. He was a collector and insatiably curious man. His art, based to a large extent on scientific models, aims to show an approximation of the deepest exploration of human beings through reason and feeling. With clear influences from Picasso, Klee, Mondrian and Van Doesburg, among others, Rojas collects and shares ideas about reduction of objects through abstraction of the form. His art is the result of technical developments linked to experiences in the places he lived in, passed through and tried to understand.

Catalina Ortiz: Diarios del I-Ching
I Ching commonly known as a fortune-telling system, is the essence of the Chinese Taoist philosophy, which focuses on the dynamic balance of opposites, the flow of processes and acceptance of the constant change that permeates all beings and their actions. Catalina Ortiz (* 1974 Bogotá) presents her new project Los Diarios del I Ching: An introspection that leads us into the secrets of the artist’s unconscious, where you are immersed without any preconceptions in the exploration of the individual’s psychology and ethics. Ortiz compiles her reflections and notes in 24 drawings that develop an intimate aesthetic proposal where the result is part of a meditative habit and action.
