I was born in Olavarria, in December 1971, I studied for some years in La Plata University, I got a little bore and I went back to my city, and this is the place where my production comes from. I got fellowship in Antorchas Foundation and that experience greatly modified my way of thinking and my work (I had Sergio Bazán and Eduardo Medici as tutors). Also, Diana Aisenberg’s words in her art work analysis clinics, opened new doors in my production. Esteban Álvarez, Alicia Herrero, Xil Buffone and Mónica Van Asperen collaborated with their friendship and their thoughts.
I participated in some national and international contemporary art fairs, such as: arteBA, Valoarte (Costa Rica), ART BASEL (US), ArtBO (Bolivia), etc...
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.
The piece that represents me the most, in my ‘now and here’, is the latest I’m working in. My painting is auto-biographic, so though this last work, is not the one I like the most, it is the most faithful representation of my actual situation (hey, It will change!). It is a 150 x 200cm canvas painted with diverse materials and techniques. As it is a work of now and here, of my happenings, my every day actions, it shows this certain things that make my day, or appear before my eyes and invite me to paint them, that is way, you can see in my picture the installation of an artist I saw in the Internet, and on top of that, you can see the image of something that comes to me the following day, and over this overlap of stuff, I write a text that comes out of some conversation I had with my friend in the atelier. That is my artwork, a little bit of this, and a little bit of that, to which I give a certain organization and esthetic.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
My work should be read in the way each one can think of, there is no order, I don’t pretend to propose any kind of reflection or anything of the sort. Well… I like the idea of my work taking you to hilarious places.
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?
In every one, I take a little bit of each one. When it comes to my referents, I try everything to be a referent; I even try to get benchmarks from the things I don’t like.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I have a terrible memory...
