The xylographer that gives life to a technique of yesteryear
Near her children’s school in Palermo’s neighborhood, Luisa Freixas turns a wheel on cotton paper and wooden plates. Using the centuries-old woodcut technique, he draws his designs, carving them in wood, and then prints them on different surfaces, from paper to fabrics.
“ It’s a very classic technique. I always say that I feel like Rembrandt, but I like to give it a modern touch,” explains Luisa.
The results are fresh and vibrant (closer to Matisse than to Rembrandt), with a personal vision inspired by his three children and the flora of the Buenos Aires. “I copy the way they play, the way they draw and try to see nature and wildlife as they do. Seeing through his eyes, climbing trees like an eight-year-old boy and then making art from that,” he says.
Luisa studied Fine Arts at the Santa Ana Institute in Buenos Aires and was a disciple of Argentine artist Jorge Demirjian. His attraction to tree cutting came hand in hand with his interest in German expressionism and Warhol’s repetitions. With a dedicated work ethic, he draws his designs with the greatest concentration, either in his workshop or in the Botanical Garden, and prints the final product in the press in his workshop, but takes on the task of cutting his designs into wood wherever he goes.
“ I like the fact that I can take the wood anywhere. I like to work a lot, so if my friends invite me to a roast, I take the wood and cut it while they prepare the meal. I guess I have a lot of discipline to work with. I try hard until I get something to convince me. Because if I don’t make art, I don’t know what to do. I’m bored!” Close Luisa.
