Alejandro Ospina

Alejandro Ospina´s paintings are related to the continuous changes in attention prompted by the expansion of the Internet. They aim to simulate the activity of minds as they encounter image after image, accumulating and merging layers of visual information with every blink. Such paintings mutate how sets of images are seen and contemplated, like a stream of information that is never completely understood. To this end, they explore how the Internet has transformed our relationship to images, to space and to each other in unprecedented ways. In complexly schematic paintings, he incorporates the technological tools available to him to investigate the phenomenon of high-speed information. Ospina digitally filters images with themes found on the Internet before reconstructing them using layers of the same images turning them into abstract associations.
