Colombia-born, Miami-based artist Federico Uribe creates sculptures of creatures and playful installations from everyday objects. Finding beauty in books, colored pencils, wood fragments, and shoes and transforming them into animals and natural environments, Uribe creates an immersive and whimsical landscape. By using objects in surprising ways, he rethinks reality – seeing and incorporating objects as materials. Deconstructing thousands of leather shoes, for example, he creates animal sculptures and cuts apart books to make trees for a jungle-themed installation. For the Woodson Art Museum, Uribe creates a large-scale, site-specific, walk-in environment. The World According to Federico Uribe, an installation by Federico Uribe, was coordinated with assistance from Adelson Galleries, Boston, and Woodson Art Museum curator Andy McGivern.More
