As an artist, Carolina Convers has consistently invoked the feminine figure, finding herself concerned with the construction of what is feminine in society: the virtuous and ideal archetype, encompassed in a suppressed, ordered, obedient and submissive female. With this latest work titled “Versus,” Carolina Convers alludes to the confrontations we face in our daily lives: with society, our beliefs, our mere existence, and most significantly, ourselves. As an artist, she is in constant dispute with herself when regarding her own work, calling it her “pictorial dilemma.” It is this pictorial dilemma that has motivated the evolution of her work, evident here as an oscillation between figuration and abstraction.
Carolina Convers received her education in Fine Arts at the Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano of Bogotá. Her work has been presented in numerous exhibitions and has received important mentions in galleries, institutions and museums in countries such as Colombia, the United States, Mexico and Italy.
