I was born in Hurlingham, Buenos Aires in 1973. I have studied Painting and Engraving at the National School of Fine Arts ‘Prilidiano Pueyrredón’. I have participated in several exhibitions, the ones in Cultural Center San Martín, Alliance Française of Buenos Aires and The National Drawing Award exhibition at Palais de Glace stand out. I have also realized illustrations for various publications. I live and work in the city of 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.
“People understand each other by speaking” is a medium format work from 2005; it is mixed media on paper. It belongs to a series of work inspire on a group of toys. The process of the work starts with the selection of toys, followed by the photographic documentation, the editing and copying and finally, photocopies are printed. After printing the photocopies, the drawing process continues, with ink, pencil or graphite. I feel that the work is complete when I stick some paper o write something referring to the image
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
Even if each work of art is seeing as a totality, I invite people to look at details closely, that I think, they are the ones that define the essence of each work.
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 that I can fit in some art “tradition” because I need to constantly experiment with the combination of drawing and engraving, maybe I’m close to graphics. I’m very interested many artists, but I can point out the works of Frida Kahlo, De la Vega, Aída Carballo, Antonio Berni, Joan Brossa, Renata Schuseim, Luis Scafati.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
Berni and his contemporaries at Malba – Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires. It was interesting to be able to compare his work with the work of his peers. I found the selection and set up outstanding, and the way of showing the works was very didactic.
