I studied at the Prilidiano School from 1990 to 1995, while I was working in advertising agencies as an art director. At the same time, I had my own shows: first in bars, then in cultural centers, and later in galleries. I have lately shown my work in the USA (New York, San Francisco, Miami), Bolivia, Peru, Mexico, Spain and in London. I hope to be able to keep doing so, as I believe travel to be the best of a curriculum. Without them we are but simple hermits painting their own belly button.
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 Dilemmas of Pleasure” are a hinge in my way of thinking of my own works. I still do not understand it, but it is usefult to me for what lies ahead. In the work there are people in disguise who I do no think to be up to anything good. On the background and there is a boy showing his back, without a mask or disguise. Maybe the only one who will be saved from this hell. It measures 200 x 200 cm.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
With distrust, a lot of distrust.
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 feel myself to be in any “movement” or “tradition”. That will be seen 50 years from now, when people look back and reflect on what we did and did not. Prior and contemporary referents are many, I do not fall for anyone in particular. I like to discover new “lovers” as time goes by.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I cannot give an opinion because of two things: I travel a lot and I have a bad memory.
5. What tendencies or groupings from common elements do you see in argentine art of the last ten or fifteen years?
I have always noted two tendencies in any country I would visit: those who work conscientiously, research, travel, show, search, come back, cry and show. And those who do nothing, but still show.
