María Suardi was born and lives in Rosario, Argentina.
Since 1969 she has exhibited throughout South America and in England, Italy, Spain and Germany and has won national and international prizes for her work.
During the 1990s, she was invited to work as artist in residence in the Faculty of Art, Design and Humanities of Brighton University, England. From 1994 to 2004, she also taught screen printing in the Escuela Provincial de Artes Visuales in Santa Fe and in the University of Salamanca, Spain.
From 1958 to 2013 she was a teacher of English in San Bartolomé School in Rosario, teaching the language through art and art appreciation. At present she delivers a workshop on Education through Art at the school.
“… Suardi´s prints are abstract and offer little in the way of pointers towards this or that ‘real’ experience... They are visually lush, with their silvers and blacks and often generous colours; one almost forgets how simple - in the sense of concentrated and economical - they are at the same time. Look at them one at a time - a few and slowly, rather than all in a hurry.”
Norbert Lynton (1927-2007, former Professor of the History of Art at the University of Sussex)
