Adriana Duque Manizales, Colombia, b. 1968

The work of Adriana Duque (Manizales, Colombia, 1968) incites the clash between photography and painting. The artist uses photography - and the contemporary resources dedicated to this medium - to make approximations and reinterpretations of the painting. She has dedicated her research to portraying children surrounded by an austere atmosphere, in minutely constructed scenes.


She has works in collections such as Instituto Figueiredo Ferraz de Ribeirão Preto; Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín, Colombia; and Museu de Arte do Rio (MAR-RJ).


Among her main solo exhibits are: “Iconos”, Zipper Galeria, 2014; "Anthology of an Obsession", Witzenhausen Gallery, Amsterdam, 2014; "The Other Side", Galería el Museo, Bogotá, 2014; "Infantes", Galeria Horrach Moya, Palma de Maiorca, 2010; "Baroque Children", Museo Iglesia Santa Clara, Bogotá, 2009; "De Cuento en Cuento", Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín, Medelín, 2005.


She participated in collective exhibits in cities such as Paris, Bogotá, and Madrid, featuring among them "Photoquai - Biennale de Photographie", at Musée du Quai Branly, Paris, in 2013; "Desnudando a Eva". Instituto Cervantes, Madrid, 2012; "Topologías: Materias en Tránsito", Casa de la Moneda, Bogotá, 2006.
