maria emilia marroquin

Visual Artist and Graduate in Psychology.

Born in Suipacha, province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. 1960
Since she was a child, she has been interested in drawing and in the sensitive contemplation of nature that comes from contact with the rural environment of her hometown. Social issues and the human becoming have always been the focus of her motivations. Her work reflects on these axes and is expressed with different materials through expanded drawing.

Her artistic practice also includes the management of cultural projects and curatorial experience since 2008, the year she co-founded and began directing Casa Matienzo. Since 2019 she has been the General Coordinator of El Obrador Centro Creativo. These developments constantly nurture and update their artistic work in a fluid exchange with various referents of our culture and the artistic field.

She has been exhibiting since 1990 individually and collectively in Argentina and Germany. Since 2019, she has been a member of the SACH collective, a biannual tour of visual artists' studios open to the public in CABA, and since 2020, the group of 7 Argentine women artists Residencia en Residencias emerged during the Covid 19 quarantine.
