Gabriella Garcia (Rio de Janeiro 1992) is a self-taught artist, whose practice moves between sculpture, painting and installations. With a process that took collage as a driving force in it’s beginning, Gabriella’s work includes not only where she is, but also where she derives from. Cutout figures take up space in works where plaster, fabric, polyurethane, empty space, metals, minerals, among others, dialogue in the construction of unique pieces that have in their compositions, magnetism as a tonic figure. The images in the artist’s constructions, be they bi or three-dimensional, work as if in a continuous effort of fusion: an incessant search for the assimilation of materials that, in their essences, bring in their materiality a unique reality and tangibility. The works put to test a vivid exercise of confrontation between gesture and nature; manipulation and relationship, creating a game where what is understood as terrain, is the unique possibility that the artistic gesture has of making brutality, lightness. Gabriella participated in group shows in Brazil such as “Together”, at 55SP Gallery (São Paulo), in 2016, and internationally as “You know you can buy it”, at B32 ArtSpace (Maastricht, Netherlands), in 2015, “Collagism: a survey of contemporary collag”, at the Strathroy Caradoc Museum (Ontario, Canada), in 2016 and “Like me as you do”, at the Scandinavian Collage Museum (Rennebu, Norway). In 2016 she presented the solo exhibition “O Equilíbrio Do Caos”. Has participated in the Pivô Pesquisa residency and also presented her first international solo exhibition “#FFFFFF” in Berlin at Aesthetik 01 Gallery curated by Kristina Nagel. The artist lives and works in São Paulo.
