In this new work, Greba Orokorra and Broken city, he incorporates the new technological tools available to him to investigate the phenomenan of the bombardment of information from the internet and the theme of authorship. Using a computer and the algorithmic filters of Photoshop, Ospina digitally filters images with themes found on the web and reconstructs them using layers of these same images to create a new abstract associated with the original. We may see glimpses of a riot, the architectural stamp of a favella, or a manipulated image from his facebook, or a semi-recognizable painting we have seen before . Using the ‘magic wand’, he lifts elements of masters or contemporaries, appropriating ‘Bits’ of information. Through this process the result is a conglomeration of information and marks which are close in appearance to expressionistic paintings, without the weight of the angst.
