Jimena Odetti

Water…it flows, it splashes, it changes shape transforming other organisms it encounters and those that inhabit it. It is within this creative space through obsessively observing the aquatic underworld that Jimena creates and experiments with the contrast of materials, liquid, transparency, opaqueness, luminosity, darkness, and reflections in her paintings. “Tranquility, purity and freedom are the themes I associate with water and the flow of life, with its slow and constant happening. It is where I immerse myself creatively…” 

Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Jimena received her Masters in Painting from the Instituto Universitario Nacional del Arte in Buenos Aires where she was also an art professor. She currently teaches at the Centro Universidad de la Costa in Puerto Vallarta where she also continues to paint.
