¨I observe the different scales of nature; to later transform them into atmospheres where the real is related to the fictitious.¨  Josefina Frederick


My work is created from the observation of natural phenomena through archive images and personal records that illustrate different scales of organic perception: molecular sequences, micro organisms, human anatomy, geology and records of the universe.

Through translation into drawing, I manipulate materiality through monochrome and distortion to establish an atmosphere of fiction and strangeness that makes us think of images of territories and organisms, open to imagining other possible places.


The physical space is no longer necessary to be able to generate links with other artists or with your own work. The constant exchange of ideas created those connections that generate needs to go further. The value of exercise as experimentation and not as a final result. The unanswered questions that inspire you. The talks of those artists who have so much to share. All this generated in me an important and fundamental internal movement.

Thank you very much Proyecto ´ace for the organization, commitment and interest in the search for each participant. The organizers were always attentive to our doubts and concerns. Leaving this instance as a very positive and recommended experience.

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.
