About The Artwork

Interstices I, is an oil painting I have made for a solo exhibition of the same name. At the time I was already working on light (and the painters impossibility to capture it on canvas). Light is not something you can express you can only try to fake it or give a sense to it. This canvas was a very important piece to me, as it is almost square but not exactly. The dimensions that I started to use for the 16 panels of the Polyptych series. The work (and the exhibition) was inspired by a few distinct sources, the most obvious is Marcel Duchamp's Le Nu Descendant L'Escalier with a central cubist shape that is also reminiscent of folded drapery, although my intention was to have a geometrical diamond shape that resembles a light house, rotating light. The other source was the novel La Casa Tomada from Julio Cortazar. In his fantastic novel you read about a family that struggles as 'others' take possession of their house. This atmosphere was present in my mind when conceiving the canvas with its subdued colours contrasting with the central bright shape. The painting is signed at the back, and will ship in a secured crate and will be fully insured and shipped by a professional carrier service.

My paintings are evocative of abstract landscapes. I build imaginary structures in space that ressemble past experience gathered from literature and wanderings off the city limits and in nature. I have been experimenting with various techniques ranging from oil painting to gouache, watercolor and pastels. Experimentation takes me to new territories and help me reveal the inner beauty of the materials I use. I show their delicacy and subtleness and the color variation and granularity from the smallest to the largest works I have produced. In my exhibitions I always experiment with different medium and try to push my ideas and concepts further so that they make a mark in the exhibition space. I cannot hang a painting in a gallery space without carefully plan and produce for that space. The work becomes interlocked with its surrounding and makes an imprint to something I can later relate too. Colour has become the central figure of my paintings, a spiritual guide and a way of expressing my personal feelings. I focus on a palette or sometimes on a single color and I build not only a work but a world around it. The landscape becomes abstract from the very moment that the gaze loses itself in it. All the works displayed on my personal Saatchi webpage is available for sale and will ship worldwide in secured and insured crate or tube. The work is genuine and I’ll provide a signed certificate of authenticity in the shipment along with the proper form and custom declaration. Painter born in Argentina in 1967. Lives and works in France More works on:
