Ernesto M. Vargas

Art Critic, México
From Muestra sus cartografias" (Showing cartographies), Published in newspaper La Voz de Michoacán, Morelia, México, Febrero

(...) Other ideas that give context to his work are the architectural forms, such as columns, walls and aqueducts. In some of his works, architecture and geography are intertwined; an example of this can be the series of the Porteño archipelago (archipelago of Buenos Aires), where the maps integrate as being part of the architectural ornaments or the columns. "I like to leave in each work a hint about who I am, and where I come from". A Buenos Aires native, part of the identity that takes form in his works comes from the architecture of his city, especially the architecture built in the last two decades of the XIX century, and the first three of the XXth century, carachterized by a strong italian influence.

(...) Kravetz plays against that old concept that "art imitates nature". "I think it is the other way around, it is nature that imitates art. People in the cities grow up not among trees or animals, but surrounded by concrete structures, sculptures. The conceptions we have of Nature imitate what we see first, the art and architecture.
