Natura Glyphs Series

About This Project

Nature’s Glyphs, evoking the circle, but open to infinity. Here Portero has continued to seek harmony, and once again records her interest in the relationship between opposites, in line with the previous work, in an attempt to unite the culture of East and West as a whole, and to reflect an uroboros relationship with nature. It is as if the artist with this series winks at Colombian culture, focusing on the rock art as a pre-Hispanic expression, as a historical legacy, to make it present.


The rock etymologically refers to the rock as a support, as a cornerstone. That is why Portero wanted to include those glyphs or signs engraved or painted on the rocks in her drawings, since they speak of belonging to a group or relationships between them, often from a magical function. The artist in this has sought to resignify those glyphs and recover, in some way, the social meaning that is immersed in them, to recover the communicative function through its representation. This series reflects on the return to the origin of the first human signs, of reconnecting with the historical imprint of memory, and also of oblivion. This exhibition tries to recover that sense of ownership and belonging, to rewrite memory and the importance about not forgetting the environment to which we belong…
