Our May-August issue is now on line


This May-August 2020 issue of Íkala found us all going through a very difficult time as a humanity. We hope that you, our readers, co-editors, guest-editors, editorial and scientific committee members, reviewers and potential authors, are all safe and sound, and can get through this global turmoil not only unhurt but also renewed.

The issue brings a very interesting set of research, and review articles. Additionally, we are featuring a sample of the work by the internationally acclaimed Colombian artist Manuel Guerrero Mora, to whom we want to extend the most sincere thanks for letting us use his work so generously. Thank you, maestro! We believe that his oeuvres are a perfect accompaniment for the articles in this issue, as in many ways these reflect the variety and rigor of our authors' work. read more

Our artistic display in this issue is a sample of the work by maestro Manuel Guerrero Mora. Through his 50 years of artistic career, the Painter from the South, as maestro Guerrero is known, has devoted his life to observing and bringing to life Nariño landscapes. An extensive array of art exhibitions attests to his vast production, now displayed in Pasto and other cities in Colombia (Medellín, Cali, Bogotá, Barranquilla) and abroad (Paris, Ivry, Holanda, Chicago, Miami). His work has undergone successive transformations, which go from the figurative to the abstract. His thematic series South, Tropic, Labyrinths, Exodus, flawlessly executed, are recognized for  their technical, gestural, and expressive treatment, and for their manifestation of sensitivity and honesty, which is the result of many years of research,  tireless commitment, and intense work (Emma Rodríguez, 2020).
