an Argentinian painter, sculptor, engraver and scenographer.
About my artwork
I´m completely devoted to xylography, sculpting and digital art. I´ve already made three exhibitions using the last of the three means of expression. They´re unique in the sense that I use the mouse as if it were a pencil- I even sign with it- but I don´t employ any predetermined shapes. Once the drawing is complete I treat it with different graphic editors to apply different textures and effects to them.
I´m currently working on videos based on my latest digital production and also on CD cover artwork.One of my latest works- Una Nada y Color-was used as the artwork for Camille DeVore´s latest jazz CD (Dream in Color), which was released in NY City on June 8th, 2008.
Thanks to Dirk Schreurs- who´s generously offered me the use of his 2006 album ¨Minds of Glass¨ to set music to some of my latest videos- I´ve been able to finish eleven brand-new works. This collaboration, which was born as two separate entities, came to fruition when Dirk saw in my digital art a reflection of his own compositions.It was a pleasant surprise for me to discover on listening to his music that his tunes pulse with the rhythm of my own creations.
The Minds of Glass video art project has been officially selected to be presented worldwide at the International Independent Film and Video Festival in Los Angeles next July and in NY in autumn.
Thanks to the wonders of the virtual world two artists from the New and the Old Continent have come together to work on an audiovisual project that will see the light in future months.
The Argentinian video-artist Marta Graciela Bressi is in the process of choosing works out of her vast new production to merge with the music generously offered by the american musician-composer Imani Zubeh.
