Painting of an offering
Daniela Elias Guillén
On November 28th, Daniela Elías Guillén, Bolivian artist living in Argentina since 2016, defended her thesis on Mediums and Technologies for Pictorial Production in our studio. As juries invited by the National University of Arts, the Director Professor of the Postgraduate Domingo Florio, the specialists Laura Ponturo and Jimena Pezzuchi were present, together with Licensed Academic Coordinator Nelda Ramos, tutor of the artist in her process.
Painting of an offering: what envolves—360° sensory experience (Pictorial Installation), is the title of the defended thesis, which investigates the Andean offering as an ancestral ritual. The reflection travels through the different dimensions and slides into the folds of contemporary painting. It also addresses the direct relationship with the other and with other artistic languages, such as photography, performance, installation, sound design and immersive work.
The artist obtained the highest qualification from the jury plus an honorable mention for her work in the academic field, responsibility and outstanding commitment in the field of arts.
