Argentinean-Israeli Artist working in Tel Aviv and Berlin. I graduated from the Midrasha School of Art, Beit Berl, Israel. Recipient of Ministry of Culture 2019 prize for independent artists. Participated in Berlin Takt and GlogauAIR residencies.
To whisper. Not shout. To suggest. Not determine. To ask – without expecting finite answers. Creating works the viewer can relate to from their own point of view. My inspiration often comes from films, stories, social media, family albums, etc. I experiment with materials like cloth, cardboard, old books, oil paints, acrylic, markers.
Being an immigrant artist and a child who travelled back and forth between Argentina and Israel, I feel that in order to interpret my work, one has to think of the term “translation”. When we use a term in different languages, it takes on new baggage and connotations. I see the act of painting as an act of meta-lingual translation. An act that transmits a variety of cultural contexts through the same “word” – or in my case – the same image.
My visual vocabulary incorporates a process of abstraction and converses with both figurative and expressive painting. In addition, although my work carries an ongoing dialog with forms of representation and painting – which are common to each of the cultures that I am part of – I remain a spectating outsider
