Maria Patino

My work is an ongoing exploration that involves human relationships and human interaction with nature. I’m driven by my inner curiosity, experimentation, and the desire to know the material intimately, a journey into the unknown.

Wet and dry media over paper and canvas, mark making, cutting, and pasting becomes a poetic process in my art practice.

 

I was born in El Cairo Valle, a remote town in Colombia.

I'm currently pursuing a MFA degree at Savannah College of Art and Design.
