Santiago Cardenas has produced one of the most rigorous and impressive bodies of work in Colombian painting. This book brings to life his obsessive drive to shred color, unravel light, and reinvent objects and the human figure using a simple evocation - a fleeting reflection - as a starting point to produce an inevitable attraction for viewers. This chronological overview of more than 200 works of art will satisfy anyone who appreciates the medium.
