Originally from Argentina, she left the country in 2001 and lived in Barcelona, Munich, Bogotá, and now Medellín where she’s been living and working both as an artist and a Professor at the Universidad de Antioquia – Arts Faculty.

Even though the area for her teaching practice is printmaking, Mariana has been working in different media; she likes the idea of playfulness and its lightness.

Mariana  remmebers how her work and practice have spun on questions around language, a certain kind of distrust towards images and their production; so much so, the idea of process over the final product as an artifact, the experience, and intangible derived from working with a material, have been the stimulation for creation.

Sometimes she reflects upon printing as a medium that shaped an aspect of her proceedings with textiles as well as printmaking or even writing, as a way of conceiving thought, or even movement and herself.
