CARLOS JACANAMIJOY IN NATIVE INGA DRESS

 

“Carlos Jacanamijoy, the son of a shaman, is the first Colombian artist from an indigenous background to win international recognition. Gifted with an extraordinary skill in the use of oils, his pictures are full of color, reflections, and movement…it is evident that Jacanamijoy’s original works embrace both nature and the heritage of his ancestors…"

Eduardo Serrano Rueda, Director of The Arts Section of the Colombian Ministry of Culture

"I remember listening, among lights and shadows, to the cacophony of animals during an overwhelming night in the middle of the jungle. My inspiration is, on one side, my experiences in my studio, on the other, a succession of memories of the jungle in Putumayo. It is this constant trail of memory and dreams passing by in my mind when I am in front of that other window, the empty canvas.” Carlos Jacanamijoy, 2007

“Carlos Jacanamijoy’s vivid landscapes embody creation and the transformative Putumayo jungle of Colombia through abstractions of color and light. His oil paintings are atmospheric, with soft edges and a juxtaposition of primarily cool blues and warm yellows…”

Kathleen Ash-Milby, Navajo curator

"Jaca's" paintings are portals into another, deeper, more inscrutable world, a world of incredible beauty, magic and mystery. Like American master, Georgia O’Keeffe who took us deep into her floral abstractions, Carlos Jacanamijoy takes us deep into the jungle world of his childhood.
