About the Artist: In my art; whether it is in the subject matter or the technique; I always ask: "What is behind all that?" It can be a message or a feeling. I create art that reveals and hides; exposes and conceals. I like the viewer to wonder and imagine. When I begin a painting; I never know what the end results will be. I start by laying in the larger shapes which dene the structure and set the movement of the piece. I further enhance the design to establish a strong composition. I add texture and color to generate tension within the elements; and I use the layers to add depth and a three-dimensional illusion. As a mixed media artist; I work with ordinary; everyday materials; such as paper; cardboard; sand; and spackle. One of my favorite technique is pouring water mixed with glue and pure pigments over the texture I have created; that grounds the piece. The water nds its natural ow and accentuates and reveals the surface nish. The biggest challenge I face comes at the end of creating a piece. I stop when the painting is pleasing to my eye; and I see balance in the composition and colors. The real interpretation of the paintings is not what I see; I cherish what the individual viewer sees.

    "Water is my motivation to create art. I take her because my grandfather, made an effort to take care of the water sources in the village of Coyabo; because my father was dedicated to making pools to collect rainwater, and because of a historical fact where Aborigines Musicas performed a ritual on the water, in which they threw gold to her, in a place called the Laguna de Guatavita, from there the Legend of El Dorado." Alvaro Garcia Ordonez is an award winning, internationally renown painter and sculptor. His work is among collectors from Colombia, Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, United States as well as other countries.
