Fernanda Gomes

Fernanda Gomes

Fernanda Gomes is a Brazilian artist who still produces and exhibits works now. Her work is very informed by the space she is exhibiting in and often will work within the space to create (she calls them ‘things’). The style is very minimalistic, using only the colour white as an intervention onto found objects or constructed items. I am most interested in her display technique which as mentioned relies heavily on the space itself. She is able to acutely articulate the space, the placements are so subtle, aided by its lack of colour it provokes thought on the nature of materials. I feel that this way of working heightens the properties of the materials, the use of the white paint acts as a control substance with which we are all familiar, in order for us to successfully compare this with the other material (this she will never fully paint).
