Nohemi Perez
Colombian

This work transports the viewer to Colombia’s lush Catatumbo jungle. Pérez’s long, horizontal landscapes recall the “panoramic painting” that sixteenth-century Spanish colonizers used to document and romanticize unfamiliar territories of the American continent. Meanwhile, scenes of present-day activities, such as smuggling and paramilitary activity, reflect the current societal complexity of the area that lies between Colombia and Venezuela.
