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.
Many of the drawings in blue ink belong to a series of notebooks I started four years ago. Some are from the Argos Bar in Federico Lacroze and Alvarez Thomas [t.n: intersection of 2 streets in Buenos Aires city]. It was locked up some years ago. When the weather was hot they left the windows and doors open anf the pigeons came in to look for crumbs.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
I suggest you read my work in the way you want.
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?
I recognize myself as a comics and drawing artist and someone with sound curiosity. Some of my national and international referents are: Breccia, Muñoz, Alejandro Sirio, Molina Campos, Carlos Vogt, Villagranes, Cacho Mandrafina, Reynols, Leonardo Favio, Oski, Nine, Suélteme, El Tripero, Winsor McCay, Herrimann, Crumb, Goya, Residents, Chrome, Louis-Ferdinand Céline, ELBosco, Burns, Clowes, Jim Woodring, Geof Darrow, Jack Kirby, Moebius, Keiji Haino, Dave Mazzuccelli, Jesus, John Ford, Ozu and many more.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
Great impact on me had the exhibitions by Pombo, Suárez, Harte, Nine, Chagall, Montenegro, and a Maresca retrospective; both Reynolds concerts with Damo Suzuki, but Alejandro Sirio’s show in the National Museum of Fine Arts was of special significance to me.
