Description

With work that invokes a surreal expanse of reality, John Jader Bedoya creates a niche in the world of contemporary art that elects to expand its message beyond the two-dimensional scale of paint and canvas. Using a mix of organic mediums, from earth and sand to ash and rubber, he produces art that is tangible and touchable. Each work is an expression of bodily involvement; the rawness of the edges and images intimates the viewer with the artist, as he or she can define the labor that each piece involves.


By manipulating texture, Bedoya is able to communicate his vision of a landscape in transition. He creates these exquisite yet alien landscapes that are constructed by juxtaposing surreality with organic material, thereby grounding each piece in both the conceptual and natural worlds. The other-worldliness of his paintings reflect a more substantial claim against the way man’s hands alter and extort the face of nature.
