“Ética” Óscar Murillo
The title “ética y estética” comes from a 2016 performance that also took place in La Paila. Working with neighbors and friends within the community, we painted placards and marched with them to the statue of Hernando Caicedo (1890—1966). Caicedo founded the Colombian candy factory, which to this day, employs many of the residents of the village. An exhibition of new paintings at Parroquia Santa Barbara, a local church in the small factory town of La Paila, Colombia, where he was born and has been in quarantine for months, represents the anxiety of the current crisis.
