Sofia Botero


Artist Sofia Botero approaches artistic practice from everyday experience. From an acknowledgement of routines, doubts, obsessions and failures, her work embarks on a survey of structures, places, feelings and memories. It encompasses an exploration of thinking and abstraction that fluctuates between impulse and control. The cityscape and urban setting, as well as the tensions between private and public life, are benchmarks are the primary source of her work. 

She works in a range of media, mainly painting, sound and installation, and the intersections between them. Drawing from a constructivist tradition, She is primarily interested in layering elements, dynamic forms and the idea of space and time within the artwork. She seeks a visual vocabulary of boldness and subtlety, where compositions unfold in rich, expressive colour, playfulness, surprise and provocation. Her aim is to engage the viewer on an intuitive and emotional level.
