Macarena Salinas is a ceramic artist who lives and works in Chile. She received her Masters Degree from the Catholic University of Chile Art School in 1994. Over the years, she studied under teachers such as José Balmes, Gracia Barrios, and Gonzalo Cienfuegos.
“I participated in Eugenio Dittborn’s workshop for artists who want to analyze their chosen language in art. After this soul searching I approached Huara Huara studio, directed by Ruth Krauskopf, where I am a member for over 8 years now. I also work in my private studio, and I attend Huara Huara to share criticism and activities.
My work in clay sculpture is about the simplicity of forms, texture, nature and ethnic magic. I have had three solo shows and nineteen collective exhibitions in Chile and France, and I am a member of the International Academy of Ceramics.”
