Ana Mercedes Hoyos
B. Colombia, 1942-2014
Ana Mercedes Hoyos (1942-2014) explored the complexities of the culture and multiculturalism in Colombia through her works. Working across painting and sculpture, Hoyos engaged with art historical motifs and the European avant-gardes, which she re-interpreted to incorporate the cultures and landscapes of her native Colombia.
Born in 1942, Hoyos studied at the National University in Bogotá. The recipient of numerous international awards throughout her career, including an award at the National Artist’s Salon in Bogotá for the Ventanas series, Hoyos’ work has been the subject of over 50 solo exhibitions throughout Europe, Asia, the United States and South America. Her works are held in permanent collections including at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Fuji Art Museum, Tokyo, the Ibercaja Collection, Spain, and the Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City. Hoyos will be the subject of a major retrospective exhibition in Colombia in late 2024. Hoyos died in 2014.
