Gallery 25 presents Lylia Forero Carr in a Solo
Exhibit called "Los Números de los Muyscas".
The inspiration for this body of work is about
the numbers of the Lunar Calendar of the
Muysca or Muisca people. The Muysca civilization
lived in the area of the Colombian Andes
where the cities of Bogotá and Tunja are located
today. They used these hieroglyphic systems to
keep time. Even though they are known by the
numbers they were given, they are not numbers
as such but representations of constellations in
the sky that they followed for their rituals and the
planting of their crops.
This exhibit includes
large mixed media works on canvas and small
encaustic works on wood panels.
