José Antonio Suárez Londoño
Untitled is a 2 plate, 2 color etching, signed with Londoño’s unique stamp. His obsession with drawing gives his work a sketchbook-like feel; the fluid script, written backward on the plate, is a testament to the artist’s mastery of line. Londoño draws not only from a classical tradition, but also from the visual vocabulary of maps and diagrams. Londoño is truly an artist of the moment- all of the imagery for Untitled was inspired by this trip to New York City and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
