La Cumbre is a beautiful small town located in the mountains about two hours from Cordoba city. Its a great place for artists to live a peaceful life and focus on making work, as many have chosen to do.
I was introduced to Remo Bianchedi an artist originally from Buenos Aires who has lived in Northern Argentina and Germany and traveled extensively before settling in La Cumbre 25 years ago. He now has a beautiful house, which he shares with his partner about three kilometres out of town. Together they publish books with poetry and writing and manage his career. They have a website with details of publications and contact information, here.
Remo spent the majority of his career painting portraits, using print and acrylic. about three years ago he realised the potential of painting landscapes. He began by making detailed colour pencil drawings on paper with a somewhat architectural style. He then progressed to painting oil on canvas with amazing natural colours using pigment based paint. For Remo no painting is a simple landscape each work is signifies something important and often personal.
If you have the chance to visit La Cumbre this studio is worth a look, its best to call or email in advance to arrange a meeting.
