Artist Statement:
I am a Latina immigrant from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Faithful to my Latin American roots my work takes the viewer into the world of magic realism and color. I am disengaged from conceptual constraints, instead I allow intuitive knowledge to creatively guide me when painting or when thinking about a painting series to embark on. Painting becomes a mystical experience woven with material reality, myth, and the free flow of my imagination. I intent to challenge the viewer into a contemplative dialogue with the artwork with the hope that it may evoke a feeling, an emotion, a memory.
Relationship to Chicago:
Chicago, moon & lake city, captivated my heart. It has been a good city to me, very supportive of my work as a Latina artist. It has a vibrant Latina/o art community of which I am proud to be part of.
