Elisabeth von Zehmen

We have the luxury of being a showcase for the works of this Argentine plastic artist, graduated from the Prilidiano Pueyrredón National School of Fine Arts.


Her direct and vehement lines, her use of color, her originality and expressiveness move our gaze. In this section you can learn a little more about ''Lizzy''.



He studied at the Prilidiano Pueyrredón National School of Fine Arts and in the workshops of Kenneth Kemble and Carlos Gorriarena.

Since she was 17, she has been working in painting, venturing into engraving, installations and performances, following a marked family path made up of three generations of women artists.

In 1998 she won a prize to visit the San Pablo Biennial. That trip was very significant, since it was the beginning of a broader search for her art, where she began to involve all the senses in his work.

However, the trips that really left their mark on her creative heart were the one to Ghana, in 2012, to study dance and percussion, and the one to Benin, in 2019, where she visited small villages and connected with the color of their fabrics, dances and masks.

From these trips, African music is always present in her works as an inspiring primitive energy.

She feels very identified with Rufino Tamayo's phrase: ''I have had the joy of expressing my soul in every gesture''.

She really likes working in large formats, there she expresses herself not only with her hand but with her entire body.
