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.
All my works represent me; all of them have and will have something to do with me. An image emerges inside of me and I obsessively, almost sickly, work to achieve it. Most of them have to do with the body, the skin. I’ve had days when I mechanically worked on my subjects, till exhaustion, leaving absolutely everything aside. More recently I’ve tried to mature the ideas a bit further before starting the work, expecting them to grow, I do know that everything has its time and space. Meanwhile I am there watching, looking and checking.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
Some are easier to read while others should be processed with certain distance and with time.
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 recognize myself and do not at the same time; everything depends on how I look at my work. I use the languages in the service of the arising work, I do not push myself into any style, I do not belong to anything while I’m connected to everything, I can’t help it. The works that interests me change depending on their quality, theme or technique.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I believe that 2003 was the best year as far as exhibitions is concerned, the sample of Leon Ferrari at MAM, Abstract Art at Argentina Proa Foundation, Kuitca at Malba. and his scenery of the opera "El Holandés Errante” at the Colon Theatre.
5. What tendencies or groupings from common elements do you see in argentine art of the last ten or fifteen years?
The receptor picks sometimes rain, sometimes noise and every now and then, an image.
