"Carlos Jacanamijoy's vivid landscapes embody creation and the transformative Putumayo jungle of Colombia through abstractions of color and light," writes Navajo curator, Kathleen Ash-Milby of his work. His oil paintings are atmospheric, with soft edges and a juxtaposition of primarily cool blues and warm yellows. Although nonobjective abstraction dominates his work, Jacanamijoy has also painted figurative work, such as his portrait of the writer Gabriel García Marquez.

    "I remember listening, among lights and shadows, to the cacophony of animals during an overwhelming night in the middle of the jungle. My inspiration is, on one side, my experiences in my studio, on the other, a succession of memories of the jungle in Putumayo. It is this constant trail of memory and dreams passing by in my mind when I am in front of that other window: the empty canvas."–Carlos Jacanmijoy, 2007
