Maria Patino

Maria works intuitively, guided by memories and imagination; her preferred techniques are mixed media and paper collage. She is interested in the aesthetic of color, texture, and form and its potential to communicate universal messages of the past and present. Scraps from old books, old photographs, and other discarded ephemera become elements of her artwork, merging through layers of colors and textures to create a new story about identity, community, and nostalgic reflection of the past. Maria was born in El Cairo Valle, a remote village located in the Andes mountains in Colombia. She has lived in New York and Texas. She is a multi-media artist and works from her art studio located in The Bird Road Art District in Miami, Florida.
