STATEMENT ABOUT THE WORK

I have traveled from southern Argentina to the ice of Greenland.

I have always been attracted to solitary and silent sceneries, bonding to a point where these spaces become a source of containment and protection, a private sanctuary.

It is perhaps because of this feeling that, back home, I devised a strategy to try to return the gesture to nature. As a tribute, and possible farewell, to my emotional refuge, which has experienced serious environmental degradation, and through the materiality of the printed image, I intend to highlight the violent damage suffered by them, by manipulating and distorting my own personal landscapes. In these landscapes that at first glance would seem pristine and immaculate, we then notice their decline, their deterioration; which becomes a wake-up call, a way of questioning our relationship with the natural world. This has evidently become an urgent matter.

It is said that a wrinkled piece of paper, can never regain its original shape, the trace persists. In the same way, nature which is disrespectfully invaded, is forever broken, and many times unrecoverable.

This is an ongoing series.
