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.
