BIOGRAPHY

 

 

I am a chilean visual artist. Bachelor in Fine Arts and Master in Media Arts from University of Chile.

I have worked in diverese audiovisual and advertising projects as art director and digital editor. I am also a university and school teacher.

As an artists, since 2006 I have performed exhibitions of videoart, photography and art installations. The key concepts of my work are the relationships between art, nature, and science, as a reflection on the paradigms of progress in the contemporary society. This is expressed through different approaches and materials, like electronic systems, digital programming, the audiovisual, organic elements and mainly the light and its aesthetical properties.


In Chile, I have exhibited in the Museum of Visual Arts of Santiago, The Contemporary Art Museum of Santiago and Valdivia, among others. In the international, I taked part in collective exhibitions of videoart and videoinstallations in Canada, Mexico and United States.
