Nohemí Pérez

  • Nohemí Pérez speaks about her pictorial practice as being born out of the necessity of preserving a landscape that has been affected by war. Coming from a region that was deeply touched by the Colombian armed conflict (El Catatumbo) her work engages with the inscription of violence in bodies and nature. Be it that she catalogs endangered tree species, or that she portrays the ravaged Colombian territory to preserve it in a mnemonic act, the complex relationship between human ambition and nature’s depletion rises to the surface of Pérez’s drawings and paintings with a rare strength and sensitivity.
