About Cintia Garcia

I live in Barcelona, Spain.

I was born in Bahi­a Blanca on December 9, 1969. When I was 6 years old, along with my parents and brothers, I moved to Sierra Grande, a desolate mining town in Patagonia Argentina. Then we traveled north and settled in Carmen de Patagones. I lived 20 years in Patagonia. From that experience I remember the endless views over the desert plateau sinking into the sea. Orange sunsets while paddling on the Rio Negro. Cold and windy. Blue sky and loneliness.

At the age of 26 I moved to Buenos Aires, where I lived until 2016.

In 2016 I moved to Barcelona, Spain, and this is where I live, work, have family and friends.

My artworks arise from the confrontation between what I want and what I get; a leap into uncertainty between the desire to do and the impotence of doing it. The body"”oscillating"”is in the middle. Each line is the trace of a movement. The work is constructed by accumulation, color on color and line upon line. The strokes are like a bridge between two shores, a web that links fragments.
Intensity is an essential component of my work and forms part of a vital dynamic. The experiential operates as a time shift: a difference that is installed on the continuum of reality; a gap that lets you see what is hidden from the view.
