Jorge Roiger, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1934. Studies photography with Pedro Otero and Vision with Héctor Cartier. By the end of the 50´s he experiences with photography to create non- figurative images. Roiger, exhibits his photographic works in a show sponsored by MEEBA, Mutual Society of graduate students of Beau Arts, during the exhibition, an Art critic, Francisco García Martínez, was giving a workshop on the ?Informalists? in Argentina, it was them, that Alberto Greco one of the founders of the group, saw Roiger´s exhibition, and as a result of this, Jorge Roiger was invited to be a member of the ?Informalists?. Soon he gets involved with the Informal Argentinean Group, which at the same time, was exploring, abstraction from the premise of the accumulation of the matter. By the end of 1959, Roiger, participates with the ?Informalists? in an exhibition at the Sivori Museum, sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art. Roiger, exhibits photographic Works, in that show, but his relationship with the painters, triggers him to start working with pigments and textures.
In 1960, he learns new technics with Antonio Seguí, whom he collaborates, in the exhibition, ?La metamórfosis de Felicitas Naón?, ( Lirolay Gallery, 1962 ). Roiger, participates with Luis Wells, Kenneth Kemble, Silvia Torrás, amongst others, in the Destructive Art exhibition (1961), this Art exhibition is reigned by the spirit of anti-rationalism. The automatism resource and the distortion of the images, produced by paste ups and aggressions to the work, is shared from the photography by Roiger. In 1978, his works are included in the Informal Art retrospective, shown at the Sivori Museum.
From 1978, as a result of the celebration of the 20 Th. anniversary of the Informal Art Group in Argentina, Jorge Roiger, carries out, many exhibits in different galleries in Buenos Aires City and the provinces of the country.
In 1982, he decides to make his last exhibition as a painter, and in 2007 he goes back to his career as an artist, with an exhibition in Recoleta Cultural Center. In the opportunity , he shows a new series of Works; analogic photography digitalized. In 2009, in the Art Gallery " Encontré", and after in 2010, in "Arte y parte", he presents new works.
Since 2011 to the present, he establishes his atelier in ?Central Park? Building, at Barracas neighborhood. Each year opens its doors to the public. In this new chapter of his career, Roiger, presents a series of photographs of stains, splashes, strokes, and objects that the artist captures with his camera, during his long walks around city places. The accomplished images are intervened with acrylic paint to complete the composition. Roiger, also adds to his production pieces of work on canvas painted with acrylic paint.
