Santiago Lozano

b. 1972 , Bogota, Colombia

Painter and sculptor, Santiago Lozano, centers his work around the themes of imperfection and collapse. Lozano searches for flaws, quirks, and foibles by exploring such topics as damage in otherwise perfect geometries, capturing the ephemeral moment of collapse in rigid materials and structures, or highlighting and creating compositions around the “error” in an artwork.

Working predominantly in steel and aluminum, Lozano’s sculptures often depict simple geometric shapes, such as rectangular prisms, which have been dented or collapsed in some way. Such imperfects frustrate the expected geometric perfection of the structures in favor the artist’s hand and all those things that make us truly human.
