Mariana
Renthel

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.
