Catalogue note: Federico Uribe is a contemporary Colombian artist best known for his whimsical paintings and sculptures. Frequently representational and humorous, his work are often comprised of non-traditional materials such as shoelaces, coloured pencils, and electric wire.Born in 1962 in Bogotá, Colombia, Uribe studied at the University of Los Andes in his hometown before moving to the United States in 2000. The artist’s assemblage-based practice pays homage to the process of making while also making light of its historical significance. Currently living and working in Miami, FL, Uribe has received solo exhibitions at several national institutions, including the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, the Boca Raton Museum of Art in Florida, and the Art Museum of the Americas in Washington, D.C.
