This volume explores questions of where Uribe draws his artistic inspiration; the meaning and metaphors behind his selection of materials; and his views of love, sex, and death.
This first comprehensive survey of Uribe’s work chronicles his brilliant use of the unexpected—shoes, screws, colored pencils, hangers—he magically turns into birds of the air, creatures of the jungle, and humans, hurt or happy. The book will trace nearly thirty years of his work, from his earliest oil paintings through his significant 1990s embrace of everyday three-dimensional objects to his evolution toward a more pictorial style.
The first comprehensive monograph on the Colombian artist currently living in Miami
In 2001 Uribe received a grant from Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs, Miami, FL
