"Girls with Guns Series" by Karen Bradtke Loja 04


Girls with Guns Series

by Karen Bradtke

 


These works and others like them were created for a group exhibition titled Pulp Fiction in Durban, South Africa in 2015. Some of the works were sold so they have been replaced.

While reading up on what ‘pulp fiction’ I found this image from The Tin Ear and it inspired me to look for images of tough women characters from films who were holding guns. They are images taken from the Internet of actresses like Joan Crawford, Natalie Wood, Peggy Stewart, and Jane Mansfield. The text was found by Googling quotes from film said by women. I then matched the quotes to the images using Photoshop.

"O Zodíaco" - Magda Nunes 17 julho - 13 setembro 2019


"O Zodíaco"

"Balança" (Libra)

17 julho - 17 agosto 2019

Magda Nunes apresenta a sua obra, uma recriação das figuras que identificam os signos do zodíaco. A composição gráfica tem como inspiração o bordado Madeira, típico da ilha, onde se enfatiza as suas formas e texturas recorrendo aos elementos vegetais e florais, específicos das peças artesanais, que possuem uma história e tradição. São representados vários pontos do bordado, evidenciando-se os caseados que contornam os corpos e preenchem os fundos. Este trabalho homenageia uma das heranças do povo Madeirense, o bordado Madeira e explora a técnica da pirografia.

"Adelina e eu" by Maria Ângela Franco 14 June - extended until 31 August 2019


"Adelina e eu"

14 June – extended until 31 August

 








Watercolour on paper   


About my work:

The set of works on display is based on the practice of registration on paper.
I focus on the technique of watercolor, but I explore transparencies, materialities and expressions with other techniques: drawing, collage and embroidery. I integrate several elements according to their visual strength (line, texture, matter) and transform the support in space to tell stories that are built with lines and dots, rhythms and movements. Paper becomes the place of gesture and heart. And so the affections take shape and a universe of emotions is born in the interaction of several elements: water-color-paper-air-lines-fabrics.

"Adelina and I" is the name of the exhibition. Adeline, it's my mother. I'm me.
In other words, the world you gave me, Mother!
