This research questions a Colombian pictorial work performed at the beginning of the XXI century that uses the imaginary and techniques of XV century Flemish painting. At first, a personal description of the re-enacting of Nordic Renaissance's painting techniques, using present day tools and means, is made. One of the procedures used in this historical painting practice, as well as in ours, consists of composing pictures by means of the collage system. The attention paid do this procedure leads us to develop an interdisciplinary reflection on certain manifestations of the unconscious that are expressed in artistic representations which have a religious aura. The rational, poetic, and metaphysical considerations about our own artistic practice lead us to study the cultural context in which this artistic practice is immersed. Particularly, we examine our own practice with respect to its membership to present times and in relation to a specific culture.
