About Juliana Duque

Juliana Duque is a painter and graphic designer originally from Bogotà, Colombia. In 2008, she established herself in the visual arts community by working with several studios and art galleries in Miami, showcasing her work throughout South Florida. Duque is the recipient of two BCC Art Gallery awards, and the Kyra Belàn Endowed Scholarship for artists.

Using portraits and a diverse range of painterly methods, my work studies the aesthetics and materiality of the human body, perception and transience. The characteristics of my paintings lie in creating static portraits and deconstructing them by adding scribbles or numbers and subtracting sections through resolute brushstrokes. Subjects are imbued with a contrast between reality and fiction that merges on the abstract. In my recent paintings I use overlapping numbers ranging from 1 to 60, adamant strokes and Tairona symbology as a means of destruction, preservation and reconstruction through time.
