Maya Weishof

Curitiba , 1993

Maya Weishof (1993, Curitiba, Brazil) is the fourth guest of C-Lab, the artistic residency program promoted by Cisterna Gallery.

The Brazilian artist works mostly with painting but tries to treat the body at work as a matter and as a visual and sensory possibility, which leads her to look for experimentations of different languages, formats, invoices and supports in painting that are assimilated with a sculpture thought, for example. The paintings sprout from drawings she makes of memories, invented situations or sometimes images that dialogue with the history of art. Situations where the body is in a place of falling, sliding, deformation are recurrent. The artist seeks a juxtaposition of things - clippings, three-dimensional objects, processes of alteration and deformation of the image, are things that escape the attempt to establish a linear or closed narrative in her production.
