“I’m in a place between nature and my imagination. Nature is there, but my imagination takes nature and creates new shapes.”
Herberto Turizzo Anaya (Columbia-American) Turizzo was born in El Limon, Colombia in 1952, and spent much time in the jungle. Myth and magical realism of the jungle’s elements and symbols, give him a way to balance a vision of bringing humanity to nature and further toward transcendence; this lies in counterbalance by his bewilderment of humanity’s darker instincts. For more than four decades, the artist has produced and shown acrylic paintings and mixed media works in Latin American, England and the U.S. In 1981, Turizzo moved to New York and now lives in the Hudson Valley.
