About Macarena Salinas Amaral

I studied at School of Art in the Catholic University of Chile a Master degree´s in fine Art painting mention, at the University had professors like José Balmes, Gracia Barros and Gonzalo Cienfuegos. I participated in the workshop of Eugenio Dittborn, then custom made Concepción Balmes corrections which led in the paint. To expand my artistic development I joined eihgt years at Huara Huara Workshop, which has shaped my art using the Art in clay and sculpture all along the workshop director Ruth Krauskopf. In the sculpture I work with the simplicity of the forms, the texture, inspire me in nature and transmit its magic. I try to achieve the idea of simplicity and beauty that exists in nature. I participated in solo and colectives exhibitions in Chile, she represented Chile in Revelations Biennale 2019 in France. And I participated in the online exhibition in Korea Biennale 2019.
I became a member of the International Academy of Ceramics IAC.
