These 8 paintings are part of a series resulting from the exploration and observation of the Buenos Aires city shore. A confusing geometry installed in the flat horizon of the River Plate. The buildings that we see are a mix of human shapes with architecture, debris polished by the licks of the water on the urban edges. Bodies that look for postures and, in that movement that unfolds awkwardly, appears the beauty. Untamed sculptures, rehearsing poses for a camera. The colors of the landscape change every minute, train new palettes with every change of light. They laugh and flirt with geometric abstraction.
