Carla Grunauer

Carla Grunauer, 1982, Tucumán, Argentina.

Her work investigates through drawing and painting, figurations that circulate along a path of free associations and mental spaces, where architectural forms, abstractions and icons coexist. She is interested in the development of particular means that combine traditional techniques with contemporary technology materials, which leads her to explore her own execution techniques as a fundamental part of her project. Starting from a narrative of fantastic beings and liminal forms in a germinal state and in connection with the historical animal / witch relationship, her most recent series reflect on the body, anomaly and desire, as possible forms of self-perception.

 She has a degree in Visual Arts from the National University of Tucumán, Argentina. She was selected to participate in the Artists Program at the Torcuato Di Tella University between 2017 and 2018, under the coordination of Carlos Huffmann.
