Jorge Pinzón Casasbuenas

b 1972 Colombia . Lives and works in Oaxaca, Mexico.


My work inquires and reflects on how processes of enculturation in actual times are influential in the construction of our sense of identity both individually and collectively. More importantly how processes of enculturation can affect the awareness of ourselves as transcendent beings.
Important sources to me are found in the review of the way ancient cultures understand universal interconnection, readings on compared mythology, syncretism, cultural hybridization and studies related to society of consumerism and cultural anthropology.
Those are crucial conceptual tools for me to create a visual system, by the choosing and articulation of visual fragments, signs and symbols which cross over times and cultures to portray the paradoxical yet complex coordinates that the human spirit faces when meeting with the forces of a culture that might mislead its path toward self awareness.
