Victoria Baraga, an artist presently based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, uses unconventional methods to manipulate her paintings primarily done in oils. Baraga usually selects glass or photographic paper to paint on and applies the paint with a variety of different objects to create a surprising sense of surreal realism. Upon close examination one can discover how the artist’s mark-making is oftentimes created by sliding materials across the surface of the work. Some of her pieces have resemblance to ocean reefs, animal horns or fur, and landscapes. There’s an interesting sense of solemnity in her black and white pieces that contrast the undulating movement found in all her work. Discover her work for yourself below!
