Juan Araujo

  •  Juan Araujo’s works often begin with photographs he takes of a physical site. By reproducing fragments from urban images, facades and different architectures, he makes visible a tension between the desire to represent and the visual stereotypes. Araujo’s most recent paintings examine Venezuelan and Brazilian modernist architecture and the latter’s complex relationship to certain ideologies and belief systems that deeply marked Latin America’s cultural development in the mid-twentieth century.
