Catalogue Note

"In Oldenburg, gigantism, macro-projection and the exaggerated size of objects, like a hamburger, transmit the cold and alienated spirit of the artist. In contrast, Hoyos, by magnifying and inflating banal forms, intensifies not only the palpability, the presence and the real sim of objects to which she attributes a sense of urgency and a symbolic content, she also heightens the sensibility and nobility that are inherent to them and go beyond their own physical existence."

Angel Kalenberg in Ana Mercedes Hoyos Retrospective, Bogotá 2002, p. 31
