I was born in Rosario in 1977. In 1987, I began to get closer to art by studying Museology and at the same time, Visual Arts; and the career that won was the latter. While studying Visual Arts I had my first experience in exhibitions, both participating and organizing. My training was very comprehensive but somewhat academic.
I was inclined to do mural works -and realized them in several opportunities (I won a competition in the Congress of Spanish Language) - and painting.
In order to open up to new trends, I’m attending the Bachelor in Fine Arts at the Faculty of Rosario and attending curatorial studies, a field that I’m passionate about.
I also venture in filete porteño [TN: filete porteño is a popular and decorative art typical from Buenos Aires]
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.
From the series of the feminine, the diptych “Feminine Eternal” [Eterno Femenino]. I like to work with the idea of genre, by auto-exploring mine, or rather wondering what is the feminine thing? At the beginning of the research, I don’t know if there’s going to be answers but at least there’s going to be a particular view. The reflection of a fragmented woman, incomplete, without look or presence. What matters is what one sees, especially that which is representing the sexual-feminine, the demand of full-filling certain social requirements to fit within the feminine thing. I work a lot with materials related with the role of the woman like laces, wools, fabrics, beads, those materials related to the feminine works that are traditionally transmitted.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
I would like it to be a reflective and explorative look, to wonder what could I find of myself (spectator) in that reflection. But each one reads as they like and that is what is wonderful about art.
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 don’t think I have a clear trend, I explore. No doubt I recognize myself in those artists, like Frida Kahlo or Tamara de Lempira, who were self-referential and questioned their place in the world and could represent it through their women’s eyes.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I like Ferrari’s retrospective exhibition in Recoleta Cultural Center very much, and the blueprints of Graciela Sacco (a great artist)
5. What tendencies or groupings from common elements do you see in argentine art of the last ten or fifteen years?
As a common element, I find the emerging artists, even though it’s not clear to me, who emerge? From where? For what? It’s something like the alternative, in other words, it is neither a thing nor the other, or maybe it is nothing at all?
