Jaime Graschinsky was born in Buenos Aires. He worked as a professional photographer and then developed a long activity as a shortfilm maker, assistant of direction in films and director of advertising and documentary movies in Argentina and Mexico. This link with the sculpture born of the short film that he made with Perla Lich, about the work of Antonio Pujía, film that received many nationals and internationals prizes.
He studies sculpture with Juan Antonio Córdoba . He made seminarys in Argentina and Spain with Karina Del Sabio, Silvia Lebenson, Pilar Aldana Mendez. His search in the combination of the glass, the transparency, the effect of the light, remits it to a different look, but stained of that past in the photography and the movies.
''''Glass is an organic material which catches light and reflects it with amazing effects. I have been attracted to it since my childhood, when I saw my father working on the bevelling of large mirrors. I could find in the sculpture the possibility of creating a bridge between the nature of objects and the human essence. In each work, I go through a first magical moment, in which I find myself face to face with the material and the creation of its shapes. There is a second moment when a dialogue is established with my creation partner: a high temperature oven, in the interior of which, ideas start shaping. Glass becomes liquid and that is when I can progress or stop time, alter the movement, change shapes… It is always a moment of intense emotion when I discover the piece which has been recently removed from the oven. The sculpture in glass is resistant and fragile at the same time, it reflects the light which illuminates it, recreating its shapes, texture and colour shades with creative intensity. Each sculpture I make is unique and unrepeatable. It contains the essence of movement and light. For me this is the most similar to the mystery of Life. I consider that each exhibition of my sculptures is an opportunity in which I can talk to the spectators, who complete the work with their comments.
