I consider my paintings to be representations of places I’ve been and experienced, particular moments in time when true beauty has revealed itself to me. Most of my work is heavily influenced by my Argentinean roots in its color compositions. I want to convey a kind of visual rest, and hopefully, for the viewer a time and space for them to make the own interpretations. A place to take a brief rest from media information overdose and the never ending fast-paced living that invades our existence.
