This is the moment when her daring and unrestrained "sunflowers" appear, whose pigmentation follows the line of the great, visceral colorists, like Van Gogh and Gauguin, who define a realm where chromatic values rule with the same rights and duties as form. These give way to her recent work, which features colorful still lifes inspired by the Afro-Colombian women fruit-vendors from San Basilio de Palenque, who, with their bowls of fruit gracefully balanced on their heads, form a picturesque sight on the beaches of the fabled Caribbean port of Cartagena. In her current stage we also observe her passionate interest in the culture of this fascinating ethnic group, whose personages and customs absorb her interest and fill her canvases."--Jacket

Restoring architecture : the work of Alvaro Barrera by Alberto Saldarriaga Roa( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few cities in the world harbor such a wealth of 16th and 17th century monuments as Cartagena de Indias, on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, which was declared a "Cultural Patrimony of Mankind" by the UNESCO in 1984. Likewise, there are few architects who are skilled in the restoration and conservation of these historic buildings. Among these, Colombian architect Alvaro Barrera is foremost in the conversion of colonial buildings to modern uses. He has restored half of the 17th century two-storey houses that stand within the fortified walls of the city's historic center. He has done a similar job in the colonial district of Panama City, which dates back to the 18th century. This has been the focus of his work for the past five years." "The interventions of Barrera have a very special stamp. Respecting the very essence of these venerable monuments of Spanish origin, he has turned them into beautiful public buildings, hotels and restaurants, and luxurious homes with all modern conveniences, without jeopardizing their historic value. His sense of materials and colors allows him to harmonize different concepts and functions, a talent which is also seen in his designs for contemporary buildings, which make use of elements like arches and vaults and employ components that range from adobe to metallic structures. This book about the work of Alvaro Barrera is a veritable revelation. Two thirds of it is devoted to his superb interventions in the colonial buildings of Cartagena, Tunja and Bogota and its surrounding savanna, in Colombia, and to those in Panama City and other cities of the Caribbean. The remainder focuses on his innovative modern architectural designs." "This book is a must for anyone who is interested in the restoration, preservation and conversion of historic buildings."--BOOK JACKET
