Loretta Firmani

Loretta Firmani, Valdivia (Chile) 1978

Period of residence: March – April 2014

Loretta Firmani studied Fine Arts and Art Teaching in ARCIS University in Santiago de Chile and completed an MA in Visual Arts (Research and Artistic Production) at the University of Barcelona.

Her work has evolved towards a relationship that painting can offer through both the photographic image and different devices used to register and store images. Working both with digital and manual means of production she develops a kind of “inverse journey” that goes from digital photography to oil painting. Starting from modified visual documentation, she calls into question the world of images and their appearances in order to re-signify that of painting.
