ARTIST STATEMENT

I say La Telesita.

One chacarera more among so many others dedicated and danced in honor of the innocent saint consumed by the flames in the thick of the santiagueño mountains (regarding the area of Santiago del Estero, Argentina).

In an almost inevitable interrelation, the folklore, the legends and the dance, look for those stories hidden in the most recondite places of the country. As many other times I liked to do so, I rescued this story from among many others.

At first, I was attracted to its protagonists. The dancing fire, the movements of a tireless dancer and her ashes found among the trees. At times, I suspected that the process would be like fire. Dynamic, intense and almost possessing a life of its own.

It is a small challenge to continue with a job that began almost four years ago. More than anything because of the different changes that occurred over time. Although the process continues around the Argentine legend of La Telesita, the way of working it, techniques and printing media are adapting to my own formation. The vision of the same process, both my own and that of my guides, tutors and colleagues, varies in the same way that it nourishes each work and each new idea.

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.
