About "Medrano 664"
This is a view from the terrace of a tall building in Medrano Street, Buenos Aires: Where many talks about philosophy, politics, and plain old gossiping accompanied by more cups of coffee that can be counted, have taken place surrounded by potted plants in several degrees of health.
It has a mystic feel to it and at night you can see people's shadows moving around in their apartments, watching TV, a birthday party, a silent dinner, opening and closing a closet. Everyday occurrences.
The roofs and their antennas piercing the sky suggest that technology is everywhere and yet, we are all disconnected and alone.

People interest me.
I cannot help but bring what I feel about the subject I paint into the painting itself. I always fall a bit in love with my subject. Suddenly I like the eyes, or the nose or the ears. It can be quite disconcerting.
Colour is important to me, not to shock but to convey a feeling of being alive and in the present. My colour represents what I see as if looking through a stained glass window. What you would see if you looked through the window of a church.
There is a bit of fantasy in my work because I believe that life is not only what we see and hear. Much of our life we spend sleeping and the mind does not know that we are dreaming or awake, so it follows that surreal colours and dreams are part of our reality too.
Some of my work is influenced by my country of birth, Argentina, with it's magical realism in my blood, but mostly I paint the present rather than my past.
