"My paintings take shape from my traveling experiences across the Argentine landscapes: coppery deserts, crystal-clear lakes, boundless beaches, sharp cliffs and icy mountains river all mingle on my canvas and express themselves through light and depth. Also, memories of my day among the indigenous communities of Bolivia, Peru and Guatemala conjure up in my heart dream-like images that blend themselves in a play of layers and asphaltic texture.
No painting of mine is a copy of real place. Rather, it expresses in the form of colours and tints the feeling that the place imprinted in my soul.
When I paint, I open my heart, I shut off my mind and my hands dancing freely on the canvas in an enduring instant of creative “automatism “.
Thus, in every work, I open a door on the viewers’ imagination for them to enjoy the flow of emotions that the composition arouses in them.
Words do not come easy to me. I express myself better through painting."
