LONDON.- Alison Jacques Gallery is presenting an exhibition by renowned Brazilian artist Fernanda Gomes. Showing the most recent pieces of her investigation on painting, she worked in the gallery space for three weeks prior to the exhibition opening, using it as an extension of her studio. This is the artist’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, developing research that has been ongoing for over 30 years.

Fernanda Gomes’ work reveals a renewed focus on painting, questioning not only what defines a painting, but also what constitutes a painting exhibition and how we can experience it. The artist composed and create dialogues between various autonomous pieces made of canvas, wood and paint. While colour may at first appear to be absent, by the exclusive use of white paint, the work challenges us to observe the subtle spectrum that informs our perception of colour. While recalling the geometry and modulated surfaces in the Brazilian Neo-Concrete movement of the 1960s, her work references the hundred-year-old history of the monochrome and abstraction.

Fernanda Gomes was born in 1960 in Rio de Janeiro, where she lives and works. Her work was recently included in the Phaidon book Vitamin P3: New Perspectives in Painting (2016) and also in 2016 she participated in several European museum exhibitions including: Accrochage, Punta della Dogana, François Pinault Foundation, Venice; Em polvorosa - um panorama das coleções MAM Rio, Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro; and THIRD MIND. Jiří Kovanda and the (Im)Possibility of a Collaboration, The National Gallery in Prague. Fernanda Gomes is represented in major museum collections including Tate, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Art Institute of Chicago; Pérez Art Museum Miami; Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada; Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro; and São Paulo Museum of Modern Art. Solo museum shows include Centre international d'art et du paysage, Île de Vassivière (2013), Museu de Lisboa, Lisbon (2012), Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro (2011), and Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Portugal (2006). Gomes has participated in several key biennials including Istanbul Biennial (2013/1995), São Paulo Biennial (2012/1994), Venice Biennial (2003), among others.

On February 15 at 6pm, Oliver Basciano, Editor of Art Review, will give a talk on Fernanda Gomes' work at the gallery.
