Henry Alviar

Barranquilla-based Henry Alviar is known for his investigations into memory, nature and the construction of animals through butterfly sculptures.

Alviar’s sculptures, so responsive to transformations in the light and air surrounding them, are about fluid movement, color and change, reminding us that everything is in flux. Though perfectly realistic in appearance these constructions manage to highlight the rhythms of nature, they create evanescent drawings in thin air, collaborating with the landscape.
