Simultaneities / Horizons

What spaces contain, their links and objects: so many starting points for pictorial scenes that allow us to question the construction of reality.

I build my pieces with a set of different stories, choosing the white spaces through a whim or a hunch. For the beauty of a metaphor or for the need of repair. To sketch a symbolic work between what we know and what we feel. I work on the notion of instability in relation to personal stories, searching to attribute new readings and interpretations to them. Making these stories continuous retranscriptions.

“… the accumulation of the past over the past continues without respite. Everything, without a doubt, follows us at every moment: what we have felt, thought, beloved since our early childhood, is there, hanging on the present with which it will join, exerting pressure against the door of consciousness that would want to leave it out.” The Creative Evolution, by Henri Bergson.

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.
