Landscapes de mi vida

"Landscapes de mi vida" is a mixed media project exploring the landscapes composing my identity. Three landscapes/urbanscapes from Amsterdam (NL), Medellín (Colombia) and Willemstad (Curaçao) were merged into a single black and white image printed onto a large canvas. Acrylic paint with sand was then used to add texture and color, such that the colorful sky enfolding the different landscapes 'drips' into them as an act of appropriating the patchwork of identities attached to each place. Manipulation at various levels creates a piece of work that is part photograph and part painting, part fiction and part documentary.
