Patricia Guarda

The textile illustrations of Patricia Guarda take us back to our childhood. She uses a combination of materials, wool, silk, linen, paint, thread, photography. Used freely but very precisely she tells witty, funny stories sometimes with a pinch of sarcasm. The process is almost as important as the work itself, Patricia Guarda leaves the back of her works open to the naked eye… Intentionally  showing the perfect imperfections of her process.

Mariana Oliveira

Marianas works casts a look at the tension between modern life and the natural world, with a particular focus on waste disposal and recycling. 

Through printmaking she explores the textures and shapes of found objects and transfers them directly into paper. Using rust to represent the process of decay, each piece evolves through disintegration, acting as an antidote to the materialism of modern industrial life. The development of her pieces is intuitive, a continuous process of exploration where the natural process of rusting is accelerated and embedded onto the paper.

Joanna Latka

Joanna Latka´s work is highly expressive, she uses a variety of techniques such as printmaking, drawing and Indian ink.
`It’s impossible to tame the imagination of Joanna Latka. Her works are a life diary and a variety of one of the trends of expressionism. They are also both an existentialist question and an existentialist answer.
Her works depict everyday life, but nevertheless are able to raise unusual reactions. Standing in front of them we can feel the authenticity of the transfusion of emotions made by the artist.`
We are very proud to be hosting her first show in Amsterdam!
