Here are some of the paintings that belong to the exhibition: What grows with trees? ...I'm hoping to build a book out of these in the future.
Estas son algunas de las pinturas que pertenecen a la exposición: ¿Qué crece con los árboles? ...Mi sueño es poder construir un libro con todas ellas en el futuro.

What grows with Trees? Challinger Gallery... map!

Royal Adelaide Hospital, Level 5 - map

If you follow this map carefully, you'll be able to discover the Challinger Gallery... and with it, my artwork!
The exhibition runs until August 8th, so take a look and let me know what you think :)

Text for the exhibit at the Gallery. (I had my hair loooooonnnger then)

Empty corridor of gallery.
Being in a hospital, images have to be hanged very high,
so children will need adults to be able to experience them!

Si siguen el mapa de arriba con cuidado, podrán encontrar la Galería... y con ella, mi trabajo! La exhibición continuará hasta el 8 de Agosto, así que todavía pueden echarle un vistazo y contarme qué piensan :)
También les comparto unas imágenes de la galería, con los cuadros colgados bien alto por lo que es en un hospital... así que los niños necesitan ayuda para poder verlos de cerca.

Amapolas de colores & Visa

We have in our small studio a bunch of poppies, orange, cream, pink and yellow. Opening slowly with the sunlight, as if made out of wrinkled paper. And my white table, often busy with things that wanted to be created, today is resting. Still celebrating… more like contemplating.

(After almost 5 years of living in Australia, on the 20th of July -Colombian Independence Day-, we received our Permanent Residency)


Wonderful evening this 20th of July!

… many things to be grateful for…

Let me see if I can remember everything…
Two pushbikes standing at the entrance.
A warm Tincat open and welcoming.
A busy wall with paintings and stories.
Sweet Claire making sure that everything went fine.
Michael Bollen talking about art, identity, healing, storytelling, my family,
my life, my Colombia, my Australia.

Beautiful, loved faces arriving with the most positive energy.
Creative, generous minds sharing insights, anecdotes, Stories!
“My Sister” being read, being experienced!
“Departure” standing on the window, asking to be completed
by “Initiation” and “Return”…because now I understand.

“Café & Water” being carefully handled by everyone,
as if not to disturb the past.

“What grows with trees?” small and playful, observing,
wanting to be published, loving to be able to reach so many.

And Carlos, supporting, helping, wonderful Carlos,
quiet and proud… mi compañero.

To all of you, people, stories and art, a big Thank you.
