CECILIA COSTA

Caldas da Rainha, Portugal, 1971

Presented by GALERIA PEDRO OLIVEIRA

Cecilia lives and works in Lisbon and has a degree in Plastic Arts – ESAD, Caldas da Rainha, 2001.
“… We already know about the artist’s appetite for the scientific universe, mainly mathematics, and a different interpretation of the world, which can express a certain beauty. An aesthetic value. In many of her works, this knowledge is apparently present in a relation between art and science, which summons human history in the progression of knowledge, without yielding to the torrent of advents that the digital age brought upon our daily lives and our modus vivendi, a term which is in itself contraditory. It is here that Cecilia Costa’s work connects the aesthetic experience, with an important visual value, to the artistic experience that her work produces…”
