Description - Federico Uribe by Bartholomew F. Bland

The volume explores questions of where Uribe draws his artistic inspiration; the meaning and metaphor behind his selection of materials; and, his views of love, sex, and death. This first comprehensive survey of Uribe's work chronicles his brilliant use of the unexpected (shoes, screws, colored pencils, hangers) he magically turns into birds of the air, creatures of the jungle, and humans, hurt or happy. The book will trace nearly 30 years of his work, from earliest oil paintings, through his significant 1990s embrace of everyday 3-dimenstional objects, to his evolution toward a more pictorial style. Federico Uribe (born in Colombia in 1962) studied art at the University of Los Andes in Bogota and in 1988 moved to New York bringing his global vision that encapsulates his years of work in Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Russia, and England
