Bio

Renata Juncadella (Buenos Aires, 1999) is a visual artist and photographer. She is a graduate of the career of photography direction at the Universidad del Cine and since 2018 she develops her artistic practice in painting.

Renata’s work is nested in the tensions between the tradition of symbolic language and the game of imagination or fantasy. Her images propose a narrative that dialogues with the collective unconscious, recovering archetypal scenes where the presence of a threat is constant and each element is loaded with a hidden meaning.
Renata’s paintings are visionary images, dreamlike images that could be a reference to movie scenes that do not exist but that she visualized in her head. Just as her work is nourished by the magical realism of literature, her training as a director of photography is manifested in the composition, the use of light, and the point of view of the images. Her work works from a revision of images from the past and dialogues with those essential myths that have such archetypal power that they constitute eternal values for humanity. She draws on elements of religious, alchemical and esoteric tradition that symbolize the spiritual reality hidden behind the visible world. In her personal mythology, women embody archetypal characters who face heroic insignia of struggle or total surrender in the face of a sacrifice they have to make. The liminal scenarios do not belong to any identifiable space or time, and there is always a sinister element that takes us away from the everyday world. Nature accompanies each painting symbolizing that spiritual reality that surrounds us and awaits our understanding. Women, as sorceresses, know how to access that power and are willing to sacrifice everything to reach the eternal laws and animate the deep life of the psyche. In other words, one can feel the intuition that behind the metaphor, there is something more than an ornamental substitution of reality.
