Delcy Morelos: Interwoven

Colombian artist Delcy Morelos creates art that calls attention to connections between people and the environment. Using natural materials such as textiles and fibers, clay and soil, her work asks us to consider earth as a living entity rather than a territory to be owned.

Morelos’ exhibition at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation features paintings, sculptures and installations made throughout her career, including several works never before seen in the U.S. In addition, Morelos will create a monumental, immersive sculpture made from local soil specifically for the Pulitzer’s galleries.

Based in Bogotá, Morelos often reflects on land use and ownership in her homeland as well as Colombia’s prolonged and violent history of conflict and displacement. As a counterpoint, the exhibition highlights Morelos’ spiritual and ecological beliefs in the interconnectivity, reciprocity and respect between all living things.
