SERIES OF SIGNS

This series comes from the combination of different drawings, shapes and colors that I took from the paintings of the ancient inhabitants of Argentina. These signs of South America interest me very much from the visual and expressive point of view. Over time, I have created a synthesis with the use of these signs, and in whichever technique or whatever material, always in the background will be this sign. It's feels like it is already built into my style. The works are abstract, but equally lead to the nature that surrounds us.

SERIES OF LOOMS

This series arose from the different designs made by the ancient peoples of Argentina. The designs are very colorful with various geometric shapes. My work draws on action painting and tries to create diverse networks and plots of color that fuse together with each other. The relationship between light and shadow and the different colors that appear in each line are important, and how new ones appear. On one hand, these paintings want to express these ancient looms, but also a new universe where the observer discovers a virtual resizing that makes him travel through this cosmos.

 

“I consider my art to be real but without being realistic, and  should hold a great epic quality in its abstraction with pleasure and tinge of pain.”
