Clara Moreira is a visual artist born and living in Recife, Brazil. Her artistic research is developed through the use of meticulous hand drawing, testing it as a language of poetic and frank, intimate and collective dialogue. “I have been walking with the drawing, slowly, it is about my body, this body that I carry. Other times I drag my it, and it escapes through my fingers, coming from the exhausted scapula. I draw myself into animals, I draw the thread of the mirror, I unravel the satin ribbons from the inside, I tie myself in strands of hair”. Her artistic upbringing took place during her childhood, in the company of vernacular artists on the outskirts of Recife, where she acquired drawing, poetry and painting skills. Her work is included in important Brazilian public collections, such as Pinacoteca de São Paulo, Museu da Língua Portuguesa, Museu Paranaense, Caixa Cultural, Banco do Nordeste. In 2022 she received the 8th Tomie Ohtake Arts Award. Nominated for the Pipa Prize in 2022 and 2024.
