I was born in Buenos Aires, October 26, 1974. I grew up in the city, often traveling to the country and the south. This has given me a very close experience of nature all throughout my life. My observation of the natural environment is influenced by the heightened sensitivity of my father's eyes in his dedication to the field and the influence of my brother, naturalist ever since. I entered the art world by the hand of my French teacher who through his library of unique books and travel accounts I spread of his passion for ancient art. Then I had the opportunity to travel and see those places. The appearance of my dog Godiva, his partner Perseus and then their pups, led many of my works.
Parallel to my high school I attended several workshops in drawing and painting. In 1993 I began studying sculpture at the ENBAPP, continuing my training in the ESBA Ernesto de la Cárcova. My approach to contemporary art was in 2002 when I started doing workshops with Tulio de Sagastizábal. In 2006 I was assistant to the workshops given by Fabian Burgos.
From 2004 on I started showing my work in various solo and group exhibitions highlighting "Eye of magnifying glass", Baltar Contemporary, Mar del Plata 07; "Sentinels / guardians of the world," The Edge Gallery, 06; "Visions furtive" casa13, Cordoba, 05, "The arrival" hall Prometheus, CCRecoleta, 04/05.
The setback of the forest # 1 (2008)
In "The setback of the forest", like in other works of digital editing where I explore the genre of landscape and garden, the starting point is an encounter in nature. An encounter with some situations that I analyze and grasp to create a scene, which through infinite fragments restores the infinite complexity of reality. In the process, two methods are mixed. On one hand the rigorous activity of sorting and classification through catalogs and drafts the fragments and photographic inventories. On the other, the assembly activity where, layer by layer, different situations that are mismatched get linked with its referent, generating an imaginary story.
Eye Magnifying Glass (2007)
"Eye Magnifying Glass" is a project I developed in Baltar Contemporary space in 2007. Along with the digital editing work "Garden", I presented a development of the "virtual workshop". For the first time I showed the method of construction of an image, ie fragments, drafts, photomontages and other operations that make up the work. The interesting thing about this experience were the questions that loomed, does it make sense to show the “kitchen”? Reveal the secret of the construction? Or perhaps, from the final image you can actually speak of the process and maybe in that ignorance on the construction of the work is where the interest lies, the ambiguity and the strangeness.
When thinking about methods of collection, accumulation, aggregation and classification, as captured in the wild, I was akin to the figure of the naturalist and his scientific methodologies.
