During most of my professional career in my native city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, I was intensely interested in constructive elements found in buildings, cathedrals, and bridges. Now in Arkansas and still profoundly stimulated by the rhythm of color in spatial configurations, I feel myself immersed in a grid of natural structures of complex relations: my garden. From ice crystals in winter to deeply transforming shadows in spring and summmer, I live among changing surfaces like a sea of small particles of nature. This late series of works on paper started as an observation of the creative phenomenon of/in life, evolving to express dynamic changes of cyclical structures and forms through time and space. Where curves develop into spheres and brush strokes with interconnected and interdependent layers of paint bring motion and velocity.
