Miguel Ángel Rojas

Miguel Ángel Rojas is an artist whose extensive career has addressed a multiplicity of themes. His work is marked by a strong presence of subjective elements and a careful exchange with the discourse of art and the problems of its environment. Some concerns that permeate his research are sexuality, ecology, the phenomenon of drug trafficking and its repercussions. It is, then, an extensive career solidly anchored in a life context that gives it originality and, at the same time, significant artistic and political relevance.

Without leaving aside themes of a self-referential nature with the development of proposals that allow him to delve into a critical and intimate introspection of his being, Rojas has explored external and contextual themes, such as the political and social realities of his country. The critical and evocative look, always present in his images, has led him to denounce the causes and consequences generated by the armed conflict on the marginalized communities of Colombia, as well as the damage to the territories caused by extractive companies - legal and illegal. and the war on drugs. Thus, Rojas has become a vital reference for Contemporary Art in Colombia and Latin America, being a pioneer in current techniques and themes to which he continues to approach with acuity.

“In these early years, speaking chronologically does not make much sense, because I feel that my works from the seventies are precisely parallel processes and leaps that I would call illogical. I made etchings and drawings, but also self-portraits in my studio, tears, intaglios, seams, photographic reductions, and all this in parallel with my experiences in theaters. I had already looked through the holes, under the doors of the theater bathrooms with the camera. What I mean is that at that time I had an eclectic attitude, open to experimentation."
