04/29/2021

Since I was a little kid I had a passion for color. I had phases I dressed in pink, another in black, another in green, and everything I chose was around those colors. The red shoes from Dorothy’s Wizard of Oz were stuck in my memory for a long time and so it happened with specific colors of objects I loved.

I grew up in a family where films have been a very important part of my education: my father is a sound designer and my grandmother an absolute film enthusiast so I grew up watching movies. This is how my adoration for images started and I decided to study art direction in filmmaking. After finishing film school I discovered the world of Colorimetry and I worked color-correcting movies, which gave me useful tools in order to learn how to sail in the world of color. I always loved photography but couldn’t define myself as a photographer yet, so I decided to take it to another level in my life. Living in NY was something I always wanted, so I moved in order to study at the International Center of Photography and since then I found in photography the language in which I was able to express my way of seeing the world.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1986. Studied Costume Making Design for Theatreworkshops at Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires. Art Direction in Filmmaking at The University of Cine in Buenos Aires. After graduating in 2008, worked as a colorist in post production, color-correcting movies in a Visual Mastering Studio before moving to New York to study at the International Center of Photography.

After finishing The One-Year Certificate Program at ICP, assisted various fashion photographers based in NYC as well as doing her own editorial works for International magazines and campaigns for international and local brands.

Somewear is a series of self -portraits, which struggle with the idea of identity. Setting my body in front of the camera has been a way of looking at myself in another way, trying to answer all those questions about who we really are. Society, family and the generation we live in, make this journey even harder. We camouflage as animals do or even soldiers, in order to survive. It’s our way of being inside a system. It's like a game, if it fits your vision can be deceived creating almost an optical illusion. Is it possible to isolate our more pure self to everything that it’s attached to us? Somewhere we can find these answers or not. Maybe the real answer is to learn how to live with this but not forgetting to look inside.

04/23/2021

Lautaro’s latest exhibition “The Map and the Territory,” explores the concept of transversal, pilgrimage and inner discovery. Large canvases portray spacious landscapes which are inhabited by lone figures that appear either in the midst of a journey or at other times in repose. Somberly and peaceful they are garbed in modern apparel in contrast to the primordial landscapes they find themselves in. It may be inferred poetically that these landscapes represent the inner realm which modern man duels with day to day. One thinks of Emerson:
“Man is a dwarf of himself. He filled nature with his overflowing currents… the laws of his mind, the periods of his actions externalized themselves into day and night, into the year and the seasons. But having made for himself this huge shell, he no longer fills the veins...he is shrunk to a drop.”
The show, according to its title, begs the question, are we inhabiting the map or rather the territory? Lautaro depicts this recurring drama: modern man at odds with the plethora of existential options, left with no other solution but to submit to a tireless search. Yet there is redemption in the beauty of the path itself, and absolution in this revelation.

04/23/2021

“Without a doubt painting holds a fundamental purpose in modern life. If the wall is the transcendence of nature, then the painting is a transcendence of that very wall. The painting is a mediation from the cocoon of modernity and a window towards the sublime profoundness of the universe and nature. Therefore the artist is the interlocutor between these two worlds. The imperative task of painting is to create an immediate and sinuous imprint of transcendence from the sublime to the modern condition.” - Lautaro, 2021

04/15/2021

Choosing painting as his medium, the work of Charlie Quezada has focused on approaching everyday life as an essential subject matter for the understanding of the creative process. From this exploration traditional genres such as portrait, interior, and landscape, are refreshed through a simplified representation. The mid- and large-sized paintings refer to a figurative language, which stems from the need of creating shapes from reality but at the same time containing traces of abstraction in a search for quiet tension. The result are subjective places where everyday objects emerge while illustrating the artist’s own circumstance.
