  • Alejandra Aristizabal  (+)

    Biography : Born in 1987 in Manizales, Colombia. Alejandra studied Visual Arts at Miami International University of Art & Design, where she dedicated her time to explore with painting, photography, and sculpture, using the human body as a way to communicate. Mixing colors, textures, lights and cultures, have been fundamental for her career transformation. Her abstract pieces tend to attack Colombia´s violent society. In 2014 she started working in digital media, creating content for Fusion, an ABC-Univision joint-venture. At the same time, she was working with Federico Uribe, a Colombian artist based in Miami since 1997. She was motivated by the movement of the materials, positions, and colors of objects, transforming simple objects into collisions In 2015 she experienced a new stage: textile sculpture. Showing her pieces at the exhibition “They Demand Freedom from Constraint” at Young At Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In 2016 she decided to pursue a master in Communication Design, at the IED Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid. Her studies took her to involve more in Colombia´s nature, culture and materials discovering the great advantages of the Fique plant. Her work has been shown around Europe, the United States, and Colombia.

    Detailed Description : Fique or Cabuya is a natural fiber that grows in the leaves of the native fique plant from Andean regions of Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. According to the artist, Alejandra Aristizabal, climate change is confronting humanity to the needs of re-designing products, processes, and services to activate the transition towards a sustainable human civilization. We need to learn how to participate appropriately in nature shifting from control and manipulate to dialog and cooperation. Aristizabal creates sustainable pieces that are sensitive to the social, cultural and ecological conditions of the world. Fique is one of the Colombian national fibers used to fabricate ethnic products. She incorporates it as a symbol and base of her work highlighting the connection with nature as an important theme of her art.

  • Canal Cheong Jagerroos  (+)

    Biography : Canal Cheong-Jagerroos (b. 1968) is a Chinese visual artist who grew up in an artistic family in Macau, China but lives and works in Finland. She has won international recognition and acclaim for her unique works of fusing ancient Chinese motifs and contemporary elements. She has enjoyed considerable success over the last 20 years with over 50 worldwide solo and selected exhibitions to her credit. Her artworks have been represented in numerous prestigious galleries in Switzerland, France, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Macau, Hong Kong, Africa and USA including the 55th Venice Biennale, the Museum of America Miami, Eduard Vilde Museum, Miami Asia Art Fair, London AA Art Fair, Art Palm Beach, Art Boca Raton and Scope Basel. There are numerous important articles about Canal Cheong-Jagerroos, including: ‘Maleri i kinesisk anda’ written by Marica Gripenberg on Helsinki HBL 2010, ‘Canal Cheong-Jagerroos at the Encyclopaedic Palace of the World‘ written by Gabriel U on Macao Chinese Daily 2014 and on Macau Time Newspaper.

    Detailed Description : In her own artist’s statement, Canal Jegarroos tells us that “walking the line between the east and the west, and facing different cultures, can both be constructive and destructive, but always inspirational”. It’s a powerful statement that embarks our minds on a journey, making us wonder about the treasures and the sacrifices experienced by itinerant lives such as her own. Construction and destruction are words that, translated into the experience of a lifetime, remind us of circumstances that require letting go of some things and embracing others. For those same reasons, it comes as no surprise that her technique and overall creative approach are reflective of a mature journey. Her artistry serves, as a vessel for that same journey, and each of her pieces is a discoverable destination. The vessel flows harmoniously, combining calligraphy, poems, philosophies, and multiple layers of rice paper, acrylics, ink, and traditional Chinese pigments. And while it sounds like a lot to take in, it is absorbed effortlessly due to the beauty, the softness and balance with which all these components are masterfully combined and executed. In essence, we become companions to her own journey, which is deeply marked by the philosophy of Laozi: “Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force”. Her paintings become, as she herself beautifully expresses: “The gateway toward a new land where audiences are free to explore and advance with their own imagination”. Blinkgroup Fine art Gallery is proud to represent Canal Cheong Jagerroos. While we present our collectors with the opportunity to discover, enjoy, and own the breathtaking talent that permeates each and every one of her unique pieces. In the blink of an eye, her paintings present you with not just a delightful sight, but most of all, with an opportunity to enter into a new land of exploration.

  • Carla D' Amato  (+)

    Biography : CARLA D’ AMATO Born in Buenos Aires, and having lived in various countries throughout the world sharpened Carla d’Amato perception and understanding of human condition. She learned and explored a variety of techniques and materials before finding her own particular way of expression: bold knife palette strokes with a watery paint mixture over a handmade 100% cotton raw canvas. Her body of work appeals to reflection bridging the unconscious with the tangible through her imagery style. Recreating the human role in the act of creation by transforming the raw into something that is perceived subtlety, through a sharp tool. Here action and motion are both parts of the artwork and the process. Resulting in a recognizable subject to the audience, which totally or in part freely interacts through their own interpretation.

  • Anabel Ruiz  (+)

    Biography : Anabel Ruiz studied Business Administration, deaf to the voice of her soul that constantly reminded her that her passion is art and that her life should follow that passion. And so she graduated from college very well prepared to “make a living”, but empty and dissatisfied; knowing that making a living is not equal to living itself, but blind to her true calling and not knowing where to turn. In the midst of this existential search for meaning her life suddenly took a 90-degree turn and she decided to become a nun, entering religious life. She entered two different congregations, first in Miami, followed by service in Fatima, Portugal. During eight years of religious service, bound by vows of obedience, chastity, and poverty, she anonymously produced dozens of artworks in different mediums; works that currently grace churches, convents and the homes of private church patrons. In 2011, after much soul-searching, she envisioned a different future for herself and left religious life, returning to Miami, to face new challenges and create a new future – a future where her art, now free and without restrictions, truly reflects the journey to self-acceptance that has been her life.
