María explores in her work the will of assuming herself as an active observer of the world by her own exercises of discarding and selecting objects as well as in her deep interest in the stars as scientific and philosophical thought. She is interested in the idea of the grid, as the vast weft of spatially interconnected points, as in a constellation. Her journeys, blackboards, notebooks and mobile constructions represent a mental and physical map of experiences. From 2009 to 2012 she lived in New York expanding her knowledge of printmaking and artist’s books at The School of Visual Arts and The Lower East Side Printshop. Her work has been exhibited in Chile and abroad as well as in art fairs such as Pinta Art Fair – New York, ArteBA – Buenos Aires, Art Lima-Peru and ChaCo – Chile. The National Commission recently awarded her honor prize Art for Science, granted for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT) in Santiago, Chile.
