Historical Context:
"I was born in Buenos Aires in 1967. I'm a self-taught artist. I have always worked on art but only started exhibiting my work with the change of millennium, relieved by the breach of Yves Saint Laurent's apocalyptic prophecies. I also co-directed an artists' book editorial house with Dany Barreto called 'Colecci-Arte Brujo'. 'Aeromante' refers to divination (mancy) that is carried out by signs that are weather events and air observation. She was a polymorphic series of works painted tire covers in shades of red." -Juan Batalla
