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 choose the comment on “Literal Approach”:
It is a book - object.
Its measures are 40cm x 40 cm x 12cm.
It is a work that combines personal elements and that wonders subjects of my interest such as the past and the history.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
Just to observe it...
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?
My education is very academic and my vision is constantly nourished by the contemporary. I don’t like labeling… I will name Bacon, Warhol, Macchi, Liliana Porter, León Ferrari, Cosima von Bonin, Vanessa Beecroft, Pombo, among many others that I am recalling right now, from Argentina and abroad.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I am very interested on what is going on in photography. The Light Festival showings: Marcos López, Res, Nicola Costantino, Fabiana Barreda, Laura Glusman, the installations and people who is working from a graphic design perspective with openness to other technologies. For instance Matilde Marín, Zulema Mazza, Andrea Juan, among others.
5. What tendencies or groupings from common elements do you see in argentine art of the last ten or fifteen years?
I absolutely add to what Román Vitali wrote.
