Luis Fernando Roldán

The work of Columbian multimedia artist Luis Roldán incorporates a variety of material processes and distinctive mediums, including models, manure, fabric and soil, to create drawings, paintings and sculptural installation works. Influenced by the work of Mexican outsider artist Martin Ramirez, as well as art historical motifs, mythology and literature, Roldán’s work fuses geometric abstraction with fragmented representation. His piece, Other Voices is a compiled from a series of child-like drawings featuring a horseman, a historical symbol of authority and power. In Drifter, Roldán addresses Freudian issues of childhood by covering an electric model train in found images and bright color and setting it on infinity shaped track—transforming the piece from play object to kinetic sculpture. Deeply symbolic, Roldán’s multifaceted works are a constant evolution of style, structure and reference.


Roldan has shown in a number of international exhibitions including Museo de Arte Moderno de Cartagena, Cartagena, Colombia, Galeria Casas Riegner, Bogotá, Dorfman Projects, New York, Museo de Arte Moderno, Pereira, Colombia, and ARCO, Madrid, Spain, among many others, In 2000 he was awarded the Premio Luis Caballero, and in 2009 he represented Colombia at the 53rd Venice Biennale.
