Descripción del Artista

There is a latent ambiguity in Ana Prata’s work that can walk between humor, interiority and critical spirit. Her colorist figurative paintings lately depict still lives of fruits and objects that appear cut from the landscape. An interior landscape that is hardly insinuated since it is not used as a resource of reality or context, on the contrary, it confronts us with a lyrical and symbolic dialogue with the domestic. The artist relates to the modernist repertoire in a way that is neither reverential nor nostalgic, rather she seems to probe it as if she were an archaeologist, borrowing and distorting hieroglyphs to assimilate them into the conversation on contemporary painting. The result is a body work that flirts with the decorative arts and graphism. Her lush stroke is at the same time combined with transparencies that give an atmospheric, solar and light effect to her optically dynamic images. Ana Prata (1980, Sete Lagoas, Minas Gerais, Brazil) graduated in Visual Arts from the University of São Paulo (USP). She took part in the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo - Affective Affinities, which took place at the Bienal Pavilion in São Paulo (2018); she also presented solo exhibitions at Auroras (São Paulo, 2019), Isla Flotante Gallery (Buenos Aires, 2019); Mário de Andrade Municipal Library (São Paulo, 2018); Millan Gallery (São Paulo, 2014 and 2017); Pippy Houldsworth Gallery (London, 2016); Instituto Tomie Ohtake (São Paulo, 2012); Centro Cultural São Paulo (2009), among others. Her upcoming solo shows include: Ritual de lo habitual at Travesía Cuatro, Madrid (September 10, 2020); Solo show at Tobias Mueller Gallery in Zürich (2021) and Gato Preto at Centro Cultural SESC Pompéia in São Paulo (2021). She has taken part in group exhibitions at institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art of São Paulo; Caixa Cultural (Rio de Janeiro, 2017); Beijing Minsheng Art Museum (Beijing, 2017), Instituto Figueiredo Ferraz (Ribeirão Preto, 2015); SESC_Videobrasil (São Paulo, 2011 and 2013); Instituto Tomie Ohtake (São Paulo, 2011 and 2018); Instituto Moreira Salles (Rio de Janeiro, 2013). She was one of the nominees for the PIPA Award in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. In 2011, she was a resident artist at the Red Bull Art House in São Paulo and at Unlimited residence, New York in 2016. The artist lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.
