Macarena Salinas Amaral

Macarena Salinas Amaral

Born: 1971

Hometown: Santiago

Based in: Santiago, Chile

After my bachellor degree, I got a Masters Degree (Mention Painting) at Catholic University of Chile Art School. I had the privilege of having as teachers National Prize Winner José Balmes and Gracia Barrios, also distinguished artists as Gonzalo Cienfuegos.
I participated in internationally known artist Eugenio Dittborn´s workshop for artists who want to analyze their chosen language in art. After this soul searching I approached Huara Huara studio, directed by Ruth Krauskopf, where I am a member already for 7 years. I also work in my private studio, and I attend Huara Huara to share criticism and activities.
My work in clay sculpture is about the simplicity of forms, texture, nature and ethnic magic. I have had three solo shows and nineteen colective exhibitions in Chile, one in France. Past year I have been selected, among many postulants, for the Chilean Pavillion in the Revelations Biennale 2019, Grand Palais, Paris.
I have been selected for Korean International Ceramic Biennale 2019 KICB, for the web exhibition, at Gyeonggi-do, Republic of Korea.
