“The minerals are messengers from the depths”
Mineralogist Ichiro Sunagawa


I take my body and transform it into a geoid, making my skin an upper mantle, unleashing the search. What color predominates in this soil? What does this soulful core experience in its eruptive phase?

The so-called magma carries the traces of the most vivid emotions; paradoxically, they become inorganic entities, entities that seem to lack life, that are not immortal but fluctuate, mutate, intertwine. They dress in color, enrich themselves with texture, and leave a scar: a petrified beauty, a hidden treasure within an abstract and chaotic composition that battles, that leaves little oxygen despite pretending to showcase nature and, like nature, also lacks an index: it doesn’t point, it shows.

The series Mineralia is created using digital media. They are interventions of high-resolution images that, together with the creation of digital brushes derived from physical artworks also included in the realm of minerals and nature, open up a play of shapes, colors, and textures. A tribute to the polyphonies of perception and to my own sense of emotional ambivalences.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
