Alejandro Jesus Obregon

Critic Marta Traba identified a series of characteristic elements in Obregon’s work: personal poetic values; self-sufficiency in regard to reality, indeed starting from it; expressive intention; freedom of form; search for identity based on the landscape, zoology, and flora; elliptic space people by magic elements; and contempt for urban culture.Also unique to Obregon is that instead of faithfully painting what he sees, he made extensive use of his personal imagination and vitality.From his still lifes of the 1950s to his landscapes of the sky, the sea and the buildings of Cartagena de Indias, where he worked until his death, Obregón’s work is multifaceted. He conveys his feeling for the geography and wildlife of Colombia, his love of family and his passion for women.
