Paula writes – As I am traveling in the Southern Hemisphere in April, we’ll focus some blog posts on our artists who live around or below the equator. Our first comes from Argentina.
I feel that the fact of drawing is merely an instinctive reflection … maybe the consequence of a certain point of view of the world.
This action and form of language has been with me since childhood, exploring different ways to exhibit in two-dimensional form the facts and passages of my life.
I think the essence of drawing exists when creation flows freely as in a game. I try the game every step of creating my work, and this also shows in the final result.
I like that the work invites contemplation … I think that really transcends the artist when the invitation is accepted by the viewer.
As for the pictures of my works, they are often intended to capture a whole atmosphere and not be merely portraits of characters.
One of the elements that you can see in my pictures is the human figure; beings that could be drawn from my own environment or not. I tend to use the image of children within the composition. I expose the inner world of these characters outside academic poses, usually in simple everyday situations and environments.
