Rebeca Mendoza


      Rebeca Mendoza was born in Buenos Aires on October 24, 1967. She is a contemporary artist. At the age of six she started painting on canvas-covered cardboard from a personal and free perspective even though she had never attended painting classes. At the age of 15, she entered the Regina Paccis School of Fine Arts, and in 1992 she was granted her degree of professor of painting after completing her formal academic education in the Prilidiano Pueyrredón National School of Fine Arts.

      In 1994 and for six years thereafter, she settled in New York City, where she held exhibitions and taught art in Studio in a School, an institution founded by Agnes Gund, Philanthropist and President Emerita of the Museum of Modern Art. The Juno Gallery became interested in her work and invited her to prepare a solo show the following year. That was a turning point in her career and she decided to move to Clemente Soto Vélez, in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

      In 1999, back in Argentina she reopened her studio where she continues living and working. She continues her fluid relationship exhibiting on a regular basis in Argentina and The United States.

      My work talks about the intangible states of the being. My search focuses on making the permanent states of human feelings visible.

      In my paintings, I work on the architecture of life, where it can be said that the structure of existence becomes tangible. This concept or expression was revealed to me in my early beginnings through the study of nature. Since then, in constant contemplation, I go through a decantation process. In a few words, I can say that my shapes and structures respond to the engineering of universal intelligence.
