Heriberto Cogollo, Colombian (1945 - )

Heriberto Cogollo
Established Colombian artist, Heriberto Cogollo is one of the best known Latin American figurative painters and printmakers.

Regarded as one of the most important contemporary Latin American artists, Heriberto Cogollo creates powerful, meticulously rendered compositions – primarily nudes and horses – set in mysterious, surrealistic settings. His oils and prints have been exhibited and critically acclaimed throughout the Americas and Europe.

In the precisely painted figuarative compositions of Heriberto Cogollo his subjects, predominatly male and female nudes and horses, are placed in a vareity of different locations to imbue them with a specific and poectic actuality outside the of pure painterly invesitgation. As he explores the diveresity of anatomical structures and surface textures found in the human and animal body, he contrast his figures against the landscape interiors, and other familiar places. This situates them in time and place, where they pose as passive models for the artist's brush, gazing outward for the viewer approval. Artist, model viewer, and background are forced into a strange relationship taht is confusing and visually disorienting.
