About the Artist:
Alvaro Garcia Ordonez the son of a carpenter and a teacher was born in the town of La Pe?a, Cundinamarca Province, Colombia. He studied at the Art School in the National University of Colombia in Bogota. After graduating Alvaro earned a scholarship that took him to Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, and France. Alvaro lived for 7 years in Germany, where he collaborated with Professor Dr. Hans Haufe in the Institute of Art History at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. Alvaro Garcia Ordonez is part of a Colombian group of artists that in the late 1980s and early 1990s, who elaborated the concept of the body as pretext, for the social and political contradictions of his time, as a rupture to represent the abysmal social differences in his country as well as in Latin America. Alvaro is a proponent of the union of body and water. As both entities join together and create a rebirth, which transforms the individual into a wandering migrant, with no final destination. Alvaro uses water in his paintings too, as the Goddess is brought within to experience their meaningful healing and relaxing technique brought from human suffering and elemental living, one must experience this, almost magical event with their colors. Alvaro uses symbols and forms in his creations. He derives these creations from forceful events: injustice, violence, weapons and memories of war, religious disruption, inherited wounds, lack of goals and visual ponderings. Since Alvaro?s first performance at the River Neckar in Heidelberg, Germany, he recognizes water as a female ancestral healer that in various worldwide cultures offers the ability to cleanse. In the case of Oeuvre in Water it can heal pain, through a jungle of color. Alvaro currently lives in the United States where he is making an ample cultural and societal contribution through his art with water.
