Gisele Camargo’s works share an ambiguous quality, in which minimalistic, fragmented images mix figurative and abstract elements, forming a mysterious and dream-like aesthetics. Her process evidences a kind of architectonic rationality which organize compositive elements in order to make space tangible. Such spaces also develop beyond her works’ physical limits, be it in the “A construção dos Minimundos” collages, in the “Noite Americana” canvases, or even in her most recent painting series, “Brutos”, in which photographic fragments are revisited and are given expressive volume.
