I was born in Salta on October 11th, 1970. I graduated from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes “Prilidiano Pueyrredón”, I went to Europe for a year in which, besides doing tourism, I attended some art workshops.
I’ve exhibited my work on several cultural centers in Buenos Aires and Salta, in galleries like “Javier Baliña”; my last exhibition was “Artist book” in Tegucigalpa, Honduras (2008); and the first prize I won was because of a work of mine that was a tribute to Jimmy Hendrix, at the CCR (1999), then it came another journey to Havana Cuba, where I did an exhibition with Argentine and Cuban artists. I’ve done exhibitions in other places, some important, and some rather unknown.
Vision of art
1. Choose a work that represents you, describe it in relation to its format and materiality, its relation with time and space, its style and theme; detail its production process.
I work on a stretcher for canvas and reinforce it so that it can bear the weight of the recycled paper.
This pulp that I prepare is the texture that I’ve found to get closer to this barren plateau, then the atmosphere creating an almost liveless environment; i say “almost” because there`s a presence of stones (brought from the saltenian Puna) that lie there marking me the space and the distance where there’s almost nothing, no one.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
With freedom, opened to emotions.
3. In reference to your work and your position in the national and international art fields, what tradition do you recognize yourself in? Who are your contemporary referents? What artists of previous generations are of interest to you?
Contemporary references: I might mention Miguel Barceló, Ramiro Dávalos, Víctor Quiroga; Poetry by Olga Orozco, Alejandra Pizarnik, Vicente Huidobro, Leopoldo Castilla.
Artists I’m interested in: Kiefer, Enzo Cuchi, Fattori
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
