Garden Studio - Maria Paz Velasco, ARG, Visual Artist

The concept of the residency is closely related to my investigation as an artist. When I was 16 I travelled to Australia as part of an student exchange programme. I lived for 6 months in Maffra, a town nearby the residency. Years later i finished my Arts degree and returned to this place without even knowing it was an art residency venue. I was impressed by the gallery and took photos that I still hold dear. 14 years later I would like to go back and work on that same spot. Investigating what It has to offer in my work that space, it’s geography and nature.

Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts from Buenos Aires, Argentina, specialization in engraving and photography.
