“Where am I going to?”This is a proposal of three photographs. Those in the extremes show different paths and the one in the center a typical store that invites you to stop for a while and wonder ¿where am I going…? These photographs where taken with a digital camera in San Juan, a small town inside the Uyuni Natural Park in Bolivia. This is an indigenous and magical place in a valley sorround by colored mountains where beauty breathes everywhere.
My name is Marcela Avellaneda, I use Abril as a pseudonym and I am a professional graphic designer and an artist by heart. Because of this background I have happily traveled through life.
With my couple I have a company called "Arte de Abril", with which we have merged art and design for making daily objects. In 2014 we were selected as one of the best studios of the región and we were invited to participate in the “Fiera Il Artigiano 2014” in Milan, Italy.
In painting as in photography I have been more a self taught person, attending workshops from friends and experiencing with different materials.
I like abstract art, express through the color and textures . In photography I enjoy the "day to day", the real stuff and the landscape that invites you to be there. As an artist I have participated in several individual and collective exhibitions at local , regional and international levels.
Much of my work has been published in books, calendars and other promotional items.
