Cristina Hoyos, an artist from Colombia, is a postmodern Surrealist who explores the theme of the “Witness” through the ubiquitous image of a mysterious eye in the sky that appears in many of her paintings, collages and drawings. Hoyos compositions are visionary journeys depicting fragmented figures in metaphysical spaces in luminous colors that enhance their rarefield, dreamlike imagery. The addition of organic material such as leaves, in some of her smaller mixed media works adds to the poetry that makes Cristina Hoyos an appealing and compelling painter of personal dreamscapes.
