About Tomás Ochoa

Tomás Ochoa (Ecuador, b. 1965) uses painting, photography, video and installation to address issues of nature, biodiversity, representation, borders and territories, and memory. He has lived and worked in Colombia since 2016 where he studies the country’s socio-political narratives and their effects on its inhabitants and the landscape. His current works are created with an experimental process that utilizes gunpowder and fire to transfer images onto canvas in what he calls “photography that is not photography and painting that is not painting.” Using materials associated with devastation and trauma to confront past wrongs, Ochoa’s works embody a catharsis, creating from destruction.
