About my artwork
I´m completely devoted to xylography, sculpting and digital art. I´ve already made three exhibitions using the last of the three means of expression. They´re unique in the sense that I use the mouse as if it were a pencil- I even sign with it- but I don´t employ any predetermined shapes. Once the drawing is complete I treat it with different graphic editors to apply different textures and effects to them.
I´m currently working on videos based on my latest digital production and also on CD cover artwork.One of my latest works- Una Nada y Color-was used as the artwork for Camille DeVore´s latest jazz CD (Dream in Color), which was released in NY City on June 8th, 2008.

The Minds of Glass video art project has been officially selected to be presented worldwide at the International Independent Film and Video Festival in Los Angeles next July and in NY in autumn.
Review of the Board of Directors of the International Independent Film and Video Festival of Los Angeles
Shot on DV, film´s a collection of montages showing abstract paintings/animations cut to New Age-sounding music, lots of keyboard sounds etc. Looks pretty good and the music fits the imagery pretty well for a calm and soothing atmosphere. "Minds of Glass is the artistic outcome of an international virtual collaboration by Argentinian visual artist Marta Bressi and Belgian pianist Dirk Schreurs. The 40-minute video experience contains 11 uniquely handcrafted sequences. They function as windows into consciousness and reflect a cry for freedom of expression with respect for the unity of all living beings." **NYIIFVF, Very unique, overall great Job!, Very interesting!

At the 2009 International Independent Film and Video Festival
New York City from October 21. till October 29.
Thanks to the wonders of the virtual world two artists from the New and the Old Continent have come together to work on an audiovisual project that will see the light in future months.
The Argentinian video-artist Marta Graciela Bressi is in the process of choosing works out of her vast new production to merge with the music generously offered by the American musician- composer Imani Zubeh.
The editing is on its initial stages but we´ll keep you posted. Check out this page for updates soon
I like your art. Thank you for sharing it with me. It would be inspiring to know if there was a way to perform live music in real time together with you performing your visual art live in real time as a live multimedia performance.
As Always Marta, your images and unique and inspirational. I wish I could work faster just to have your images on my CD covers. Regretfully I haven`t had time to start my 2nd CD, but I hope to start after this big band project. Also, I still haven`t about our venture. I will keep trying for us.... Keep the creative flow going!!! You are the best.... Thanks so much for sharing.... Peace, Imani Z!
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
