BioI was born and grown up in Chile, now living in Austria.
For twenty-one years I have been supervising the traveling exhibitions for schools with reproductions of works of fine art, which were funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Culture. I was also responsible for organizing the exhibitions and for the last two years I have been interim program manager at the same gallery (Viennese Association of National Education). Since 2004 I have been working in a tourist business and as artist.
However, painting has been my passion since childhood.
Art StatementWhen I don’t paint, I’m like a captive lion with only one wish – to break free. When I paint, I meet myself and my subconscious is reflected in the colors and finds expression in the pictures. For me it is a complex and demanding work full of emotions.
I look at it, criticize it, scratch it, cover it with acrylic layers … I destroy it to ultimately create something that turns out to be an expression of my deepest inner being. Through the art work I can communicate myself and my inner worlds…
I am concerned with issues that touch me deeply, such as racism, equality, terror, violence, hunger, the enormous influence of the economic powers on important components of our existence i.a. on our living space, the earth etc… Some of them find expression in two new series with different topics: MOMENT and QUO VADIS.
