Fans of the dreamy imaginary landscapes of Colombian painter Guillermo Londoño are in for a treat: the gallery just received seven handsome new canvases. Londoño’s work reflects his travels and international education. After studying art in Colombia and receiving a degree in fine art from the University of California, Berkeley, Londoño was one of several artists invited to work in the studio of José Luis Cuevas in Mexico City. Attracted to the paintings of Mark Rothko and Clifford Still, the young Colombian now became enthralled by the paintings of Rufino Tamayo. The techniques of those masters occasionally can be seen to influence the paintings of Londoño’s. The artist stresses that his works do not represent actual landscapes, but are “mindscapes,” composed of images compiled from his accrued store of memories. Born in Bogotá, his solo exhibitions have ranged from his home city to Berlin, Tokyo, and Miami.
