    Biography : Ricardo Cardenas (b. Medellín, Colombia, 1966) His interest in art started at a very early age when he was only 5 years old. He studied arts at ‘Instituto de Bellas Artes’ in Medellín. Cardenas is also a Civil Engineer and holds Master's Degree in Manufacturing Engineering from the University of Massachusetts. While his engineering background has been fundamental for the development of his work, his inspiration is nature which he interprets with abstract elements and forms.

  • John Henry  (+)

    Biography : John Henry’s monumental-scale sculptures have appeared in city plazas and public spaces across the Unites States since he first began working at this scale in the 1960s. A forerunner of Chicago’s contemporary public art scene, John Henry’s work has been highly visible in public collections ever since. His return to working at the monumental scale in the 1990’s led to a strong interest in his work in the international arena. The appeal of John’s work is not simple aesthetic. His massive sculptures confront the surroundings at a scale that completes with the man-made environment and nature’s wonders. One attraction of sculpture at the scale is the work’s ability to transcend environmental challenges and cultural barriers. Reacting to forms within our personal landscape is a shared human experience. Whether John Henry’s work is installed within the ancient walls of the twelfth-century chapel in Italy or a metropolitan park in contemporary China, he design a perfectly adapted form that awaits the human encounter. He has managed to create sculptures that become virtual monuments in their respective settings, so much a part of the viewer’s everyday lives that the Works develop pinto meeting places, points of reference, and actual icons for the cities in which they reside. The sculpture becomes and integral part of the communities visual lexicon and if removed, as in the case of Jaguar in Vancouver, the city protests that essential part of the landscape is now absent.

  • Guillermo Fornes

    Biography : It is difficult not to perceive the spirituality, the intense transcendental aura that transpires the work of Guillermo Fornes (Bilbao, Spain, 1964), especially in "Entropy" (2019), his first personal exhibition in the United States. A sample composed of twenty works made between 2017-2019, which includes the Epiphany multiple consisting of seven drawings. In this body of works emphasizes the use of a poetic, whose lineage digs its roots, on one hand, in abstract expressionist art and in an expansive symbolic conceptualism on the other, that explores an iconography of its own expressive codes. Thus, the poetics of Fornes is marked by a language that drinks, almost in the same proportion, both in the source of lyrical abstraction as well as in an expressionist symbolism of conceptual syntax, often incorporating expressive elements of the neo figuration. All this is visible in works such as Arch Light, Bow Shadow, Enzo or Encuentro. The attention here is the presence of an iconographic repertoire formed by circles, arcs and circumferences, lines of thick or thin strokes seeking hidden beauty behind the harmony of proportions. In the same way, draws attention the use of gunpowder as a kind of pigment that diffuses the contours of objects in the pictorial plane, expanding and transpiring the different spaces delimited by the figures. Figures as perched on blurred backgrounds, for whose textures the color seems to have filtered, leaving only the trace, the shadow of what it was. Hence, there is no affirmation of color in these funds. Or at least, the intensity of it is attenuated, because in these backgrounds, what is sought rather is the levity of a light that contains the auras of all. Hence too, that feeling of weightlessness, that leap into the void of a gaze that, projecting equilibrium in all directions, ‘appeases’ the tension and the areas of expressive disjunctions characteristic of his pictorial gesture.

  • Juan Garaizabal

    Biography : He has accrued international renown for his monumental public sculptures. His "Urban Memories", structures intertwining sculpture and illumination, are a recuperation of long-lost architectural elements occupying vacant, historically significant sites. The lost landmarks are depicted at both their original sites and sizes. A truly versatile artist, Garaizabal’s multifaceted work encompasses drawings, sculpture, light and acoustical installations, video art, and engraving. Originally a conceptual artist, as a sculptor a large part of his preparatory and final work has been done by hand, using such techniques as forging, carpentry, electricity, plasticity, and masonry - all skills acquired through time and experimentation. As of 2008, his main studio is in Berlin, Germany, although he maintains another in Madrid, Spain and in Miami US. Well known, American art historian and critic, Barbara Rose has published a monographic book about his work that was presented in Chicago’s Art Fair in September 2016. They have also collaborated in projects such as "La Memorial del Giordano" at the 55t edition of the Venice Biennial.
