Catalina Aranguren



from The Four Seasons

Catalina Aranguren participated in The Four Seasons show in Spring/Summer 2017 at Village West.

"I come from a very "not simple" background. Born in Bogota, Colombia, raised in Caracas, Venezuela studying at the American school, wavering in between third and first worlds, depending on my activities of the day. I received my BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an added stint at the Spéos Paris Photographic Institute. Because of this diverse cultivation, or perhaps despite it, my work tends to explore the relationship between perception and cognition.

I don't set out to look for subjects, the texture, shape, or relation will fascinate me, and I will in turn try to capture its spontaneity. Images are created from both the mundane and the fantastical, with strong emphasis on the light and the dark."
