New Roads: Artists born before 1940
We always stayed close to our native Colombia, and the local museums there led us to understand and value the geometric tradition. This began with the works of Ramirez Villamizar and Carlos Rojas, which led us to explore the world of modern art. This included Venezuelan cinetism, Argentinian art such as Madi and optical, the concrete art of Brazil, as well as the forgotten masters of Mexican abstraction. As we began to travel to art fairs in other countries, we soon expanded to other artistic concepts. We started to see the connections between modernism and more contemporary art not only in Latin America but also in the rest of the world.
Today we can say that, even though we like to be consistent with our own curatorial guidelines, we are not shy to buy any work that inspires us. We are not only open but eager to understand new trends and continue to immerse ourselves in this never-ending story. We are very lucky to enjoy this passion together, as a couple, as D+C, and we are grateful to be able to meet with so many artists, curators, and other intellectuals pursuing new worlds through the visual arts. Many years have passed, but we feel that the journey is only beginning…
