EDUARDO TERRANOVA is a practicing artist and architect based in New York City. Born in Cali, Colombia, his childhood is filled with the iconography of the Catholic faith and the violence of civil conflict engendered by a sixty-year period of internecine war in his homeland. He is raised with his grandfather's stories of terror and recounting of the deaths and disappearance of hundreds of thousands of citizens. Subsequently, Terranova has his own personal encounters with the dark menace of political and military violence. At 19, he chooses to leave the country. The conflict continues.As a child, Eduardo stitches and builds kites and makes his own toys. Early ballet classes helped him develop a sense of space, of defying gravity and balance of bodies in motion. His passion for art expands. Soon, he feels the power and freedom of holding a pencil or brush; it is like dancing around the universe with his heart in his hands. His studies and travels bring a mature appreciation of dimensionality, textures and surfaces. He begins to draw on a magical realism created from the bringing together and rending apart of elements. The result is a unique aesthetic, bonded in the smelter of life experience and manifesting the enduring fountainhead of human dignity.Read more

The Morning of March 1, 2003
I received a call from Don at the Don O'Melveny Gallery on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood a few days earlier. 'Did I have any paintings for him that I might want to show - they were having a gallery opening of contemporary art work and he really wanted to include a piece of my work.' I agreed to put The Emerald Forest into the show. On the morning of the show, as I stepped out of the shower, my mind was on the fact that President Bush was about to lead us into war in Iraq. Would there be retaliation, as had been suggested by the media - perhaps even here on U.S. soil. Were there really any weapons of mass destruction? Why did U.S. servicemen need to go overseas and die - was this really our war? What would Sadaam Hussein do in retaliation? I sat on the edge of my bed where I kept a pencil to scribble down whatever words popped into my consciousness. It was a poem, and I typed it up and placed it next to The Emerald Forest to take with me to the Gallery. At that moment, the telephone rang and it was my older sister.Read more
