Brazilian artist, Fernanda Gomes lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, where she has lived in ever since. Her art works have been widely appreciated by acclaimed art institutions, what led to inclusion of her works in the collections of Art Institute of Chicago, Miami Art Museum or Tate in London, just to name a few.
Works of Fernanda, positioned on the edge between painting and sculpture, disrupt the boundaries of object and space, light and shadow, composition and dispersion.
Through deliberately selection of the materials, the artist refers to the relation between form and a whole. In the word’s of Alison Jacques Gallery in London, the gallery which represent the artist: “Like the Russian Constructivist Kazimir Malevich, Gomes addresses the dissolution of planes in space and her use of white as the only artificial colour in her practice in part references the history of the monochrome. Employing only the organic palette of the colours of existing objects, or smearing white across their surfaces, Gomes highlights the tangible properties of her objects while simultaneously making parts of them disappear.”
