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.
“Sick Duck” is a painted made during a period of extreme sadness. Its style exists in function of providing verisimilitude to the image. Its theme is tenderness. Painted in a two-month period by the end of 2003. Oil, 47’’ x 39’’
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
As a scrabble game, there isn’t any fixed plan. One image generates the next one. I don`t do series. Despite the fact that some level of narration is inevitable, it’s not intentional. Chronology is irrelevant to the presentation.
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?
Within the tradition of curious people.

4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I’m always interested in the work of Roberto Jacoby, Guillermo Kuitca and Fernanda Laguna.
