Carlos Jacanamijoy

“Jacanamijoy’s body of work is based on remembrances, which he expresses through symbols and colour. We encounter images composed with the formal freedom that he learned from Abstract Expressionism and the European avant-gardes. Bringing together figuration (landscapes), expressionism (the combination of blotches and gestural brushstrokes) and abstraction (compacted forms) Jacanamijoy paints poetic atmospheres whose highly dynamic chromatic flows are connected to the ritual practice of the yajé”.
Álvaro Medina – curator of the Museum of Modern Art in Bogota (MAMBO)
