I was born in Buenos Aires, 1969. I spent my childhood in Hurlingham, Caracas and San Isidro. Since 1983 I have lived in several cities of the Patagonia. My training as a painter is self taught. I wrote novels, short stories, poetry and for some years comics. The motivations of my art can be summed up in the two ways I personally perceive the experience of being a human being: on the surface it is a beautiful blessing, more profoundly, a painful mystery. My art comes from the depths. To me, painting is to go down to the depths, taking the mystery and bringing it up to the surface, transforming it into a blessing. I do it because it helps me living, and because I just cannot stop doing it.
I have had individual exhibitions at the Borges Cultural Center, Braga Menéndez Gallery, Agustina del Campo, Silver Cord (Rosario), Comahue University (Neuquén).
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.
So far I have not created a work that would fully represent me; I hope to have the time to do it. However, I believe it would be a group of works rather than one in particular.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
I don’t suggest any particular way to read it. Ideally, I would prefer a viewer who could depart with no starting or reference point, even without an "art education", as one who admires a tree without knowing botany.
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 do not recognize myself into any particular tradition neither have contemporary references. I am interested in art of antiquity and in general the great artists of the art history. The Argentine contemporaries (that I know) I put on the list.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I don’t have a particular formed opinion.
5. What tendencies or groupings from common elements do you see in argentine art of the last ten or fifteen years?
I see a lot of artistic production in general that bores me and doesn’t interest me enough as to give an opinion. The exceptions are individuals, not trends.
