Collection: Gabriela Albuquerque
Gabriela Albuquerque is a Brazilian artist, who works and lives in Cascais. Her current research focuses on landscapes and recurrent developments beyond the historical academic tradition of this genre. The almost compulsive repetition of images seeks to exalt the paradox between permanence and impermanence of our surroundings, of what is familiar to us, but also ephemeral. The choice of oil paint as her medium, which follows a centuries-old tradition, questions the continuity of certain practices that persist despite constant innovations. The paintings are more than only records of moments and places, they are also an attempt - perhaps a frustrated one - to turn the ephemeral into permanent.
