About The Artists

Carolina Gómez Diaz

Carolina Gómez Diaz‘s art possesses recurrent crossings with her training as a jeweler. In 2001 she conducted studies in jewelry, through which her interest in color, the glare, reflections, and meaningful composition blossomed. Later, as she continued her studies in aesthetics and contemporary art, she redirected her work to explore the possibilities between the craft of jewelry and painting as a single, unified art form.

It was quite the powerful combination.

Patricia Carparelli

Patricia Carparelli uses oil on canvas to paint abstract narratives that are soothing to the eye and stimulating to the mind. Her use of predominantly pastel colors throughout the series creates space for feelings of warm nostalgia, particularly evoking thoughts of childhood and the freedoms associated with it, combined with the ease of forward motion and maturity.

Renata Salles

Renata Salles was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and now lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland. Her work includes paintings on canvas, digital works, photography, and collages. Her paintings are vibrantly geometric and evocative, leaving much to the viewers’ imagination and resulting in great satisfaction in her use of bold colors and defining lines.

Rizza

In the process of seeking self-knowledge, Rizza realized that she could deepen awareness through photography. The attributes of stillness, absolute silence, and meditation have become essential for the creation of her imagery, which aims to eternalize the experimental nature of her working process as she interacts with a plural entity.
