Championing Women Artists
from Latin America, Spain & Portugal
Maria Elvira Escallón - Solo Show
Part of Vortic's Female Voices of Latin America
05 April - 02 May 2021
AMALGAMA ART presents Distorted Environments, a solo exhibition displaying the work of renowned Colombian Artist Maria Elvira Escallon. Curated by Daniela Galán, this exhibition shines a light on the meanings and boundaries of the embodiment of nature and, thus, its domination. Foreshadowing what today scientists suggest as our new geological era - the Anthropocene-, Escallón's work allows us to see both the impacts of human intervention in the ecosystem and man's fictional perception of nature. Is nature still an idyllic, unaltered, virginal place, or has human interference affected it to such a degree that all that surrounds us is just our own construct?
