Roberto Fernández-Ibáñez: Statement
I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1955. I studied Chemistry and I am self-taught in Photography. I develop and print my works using my own formulas, making each of them unique.
Besides Photography, I design and make artist’s books that include haiku and prose of my authorship, drawing, calligraphy, photography and mixed media.
I am interested in the frontier between the real and the imaginary, mythology, symbolism, metaphor as an expressive tool, the environment, and the human condition’s search for transcendence.
To quest, to investigate, and to give an aesthetical answer: these are my aims and leitmotivs.
