Full title: La Familia: Cenelia Reyes Aullón, Colombia and Danilo Rodriguez Reyes, New Zealand.

My final work is a collaboration between my mother (Cenelia Reyes) and myself. We created this drawing from a distance as she is in Colombia. Making it together allowed us to reconnect after being separated and becoming a refugee in New Zealand a decade ago. An important aspect of this project is that the drawing became the vehicle to reconnect much like in the spirit of relational art practices.

(This artwork was exhibited at Exposure Exhibition He Kanohi Kitea) in 2021.
There is a lot of details in this drawing which made it even harder to photograph. I am more than happy to arrange visits to see the work in person (no obligation). This drawing was made for my final art project at Massey University. It is professionally framed (preferably pick-ups/drop-offs from wellington only).

About the artist:
Rodriguez Reyes was born in Curillo, Colombia in 1996 and became an internally displaced person at a young age, due to Civil War in his home country. He spent his early childhood with his family in Bogotá D.C. and moved to Ecuador at the age of nine where he officially became a refugee with his father and two brothers. At the age of sixteen he moved to New Zealand and entered the education system, where he turned to art as a creative and emotional outlet as the significant language barrier inhibited him from immediately building social connections with his fellow peers.
