I studied engraving since I was 12 years old with Martha Gavensky.
Later, Drawing and Painting in MEEBA, Fine Arts Encouragement, and with various artists (I can mention Martín Riwnyj and Alejandro Boim).
I participated in the exhibitions in Pérez Celis Foundation, the Museum of Fine Arts of Luján, the National Library and the Del Socorro Galleries, Sara García Uriburu Gallery and Pérez Quesada Gallery, the Recoleta Cultural Center, San Martín Cultural Center, Borges Cultural Center and Manuel Belgrano Award.
I exhibited individually in the San Martín Cultural Center, Pérez Quesada Gallery, Clásica & Moderna Bookshop and the National School of Buenos Aires.
In the United States I exhibited in the International Village Gallery, San Francisco, Chapman University and SOLART Gallery, Los Angeles.
I sold paintings in Argentina and abroad.
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 painting "To José" [“A José”]. It shows an old man asleep in a bar. The figure is surrounded by lines and planes, trying to represent the more or less attention that the sight pays when it sees the scene and to highlight the impact of the eye of the observer in the resulting image. I used a table of 70 X 70 cm. The background is painted with a palette knife using glue, tempera and acrylic. Then I painted the figures in oils, with brush and palette knife. I also used a metal sharp scalpel to make some details in the surface.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
Paying attention to the perception process. The painting represents, but there is also the subject there. The idea is a framework for the materials. I'm very interested in working the materials.
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 belong to any trend I know. Yes, I would like to bring to the painting and to the present the poetry of Gonzalez Tuñón, Carriego, Pilar Solves, Gianuzzi, Expósito, Manzi, Cadícamo, Vinicius de Moraes, Violeta Parra, Di Fulvio, Rodríguez Castillos, Neruda and others. Artists that interest me: De La Cárcova, Blanes, Reynaldo Giudici, Carlos Alonso, Diego Velázquez, José Ribera, Antonio López García, Favretto, Freud, Ferrari (the father), Bacon, Tapies. There are some more.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
As long as the art buries itself beneath the business, it is very difficult for an exhibition to be highly significant. I do not remember very much everything I saw. I remember an excellent retrospective of Roux, and exhibitions which were made with the works that were in the basement of the Fine Arts National Museum (Buenos Aires).
5. What tendencies or groupings from common elements do you see in argentine art of the last ten or fifteen years?
As Lula Mari uses to say: "Too little space for too many people".
