An exploration of a lunar landscape
Paisaje Lunar (2010) by Giovanni Sánchez TOTMuseum of Contemporary Art Bogotá
The work only uses three colors: red, white, and black. Cats play a fundamental role in the visual and graphic language of TOT.
In the top right hand corner we find a feline whose characteristics are also similar to a small fox.
In the center of the painting, these three brushstrokes complement each other in such a way that as we take a closer look...
we realize these brushstrokes and paint droplets build a stylized cat in the very center of the composition.
To the right and with longer ears, we discover a "cat-rabbit."
A bit further down we find another fox-cat again. TOT shows that hybrid identities thrive in urban environments where we assume different roles to adapt to threats and opportunities.
This painting was included in the exhibit "Hybrid Identities" a project that encourages us to discover who we are through the museum's permanent collection.
