For Diego Mendoza Imbachi the process of gardening is intrinsically linked to art making, a platform for his ongoing exploration into the natural landscape and topographies of rural Colombia. Growing up in the department of Cauca in the village of Venta Cajibio, an active area for farming and gardening, Imbachi noticed the impact of industrialisation on his own soil. Drawing on his previous vocations of farming and gardening in a region dependent on its livestock and agriculture, the artist began to observe rapid changes in the landscape. In an artistic response, he began actively drawing his environment with pencil and graphite, cataloguing transformations and mutations in real time. The outcome has been a naturalistic reimagining of biological processes through detailed accounts of fantastical plant forms and futuristic realties.
