ARTIST´S STATEMENT

My graphic work is mainly developed in metal techniques, embossing, photography and artist books. The images and techniques differ according to what I am trying to communicate. Sometimes they evoke expressionist abstractions; other figurations with autobiographical elements or a language of symbols, metaphors and allegories with a surrealist tone. Color treatment also ranges from achromatism to complex color treatments with highlights and Chine-collé.

In my latest creations I explore concepts and elements related to memory and autobiography. I have ventured into street art focusing more on social issues and Performances ritualizing actions.

ABOUT FRONTIER

As always, it has been a pleasure to participate in another Projecto ´ace. Successful combination of professionalism and friendliness, along with the atmosphere of familiarity. It is very interesting to reflect on the FRONTERA theme, to nourish yourself with the different ideas and proposals of the fellow residents.

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.
