Interview with Pipa 2016 Nominated Artists | Meet Chiara Banfi, Ícaro Lira, Julia Milward and Leticia Ramos
This week, we released four interviews with Pipa 2016 nominated artists: Chiara Banfi, Ícaro Lira, Julia Milward and Leticia Ramos. Banfi talks about her works that dialogue with music and sound. Lira talks about the greater freedom of action an artist has. Milward talks about her working technique and the fact that each of her projects happens in a different way. Ramos explains that the work will be done mostly with analog photography, printing on silver paper and historical and alternative photography techniques.
(California, USA) This is the artist’s first exhibition in Los Angeles and presents new paintings, soft sculptures and a room of experience—an immersive installation that fills nearly half of the gallery with colorful plastic spheres and features a soundscape by Brazilian musician Rodrigo Amarante.
This week, we released an interview with Leticia Ramos, who was a PIPA finalist in 2015. The artist spent 6 months in Portugal in order to do some research on the Lisbon Earthquake that happened in 1975 and says that this event was a turning point change in the city. The artist explains that the work will be done mostly with analog photography, printing on silver paper and historical and alternative photography techniques.
(North Carolina, USA) The exhibition brings together the artwork of four important contemporary Brazilian artists. Each of these artists make work that is autobiographical, finding unexpected beauty in reshaping their environments with found objects. The artists Brígida Baltar, Raul Mourão, Sérgio Sister and Vik Muniz take part in the show.
Ranging from immersive to intimate in scale, Sandra Cinto presents new works on canvas in “Two Forces”
(New York, USA) In this new body of work, titled By Chance and Necessity, masterfully hand-drawn rock formations are layered with transparent fields of blue pigment applied to canvas using various methods. Recognizing the generative powers of opposing forces, Cinto strikes an exquisite balance: chance and control, fluid and solid, presence and emptiness are continually in conflict in her work.
