  • Catalogue Essay

    Since the 1980’s Fernanda Gomes’ artistic practice has centered on an exploration of materiality. Gomes’ interest in using industrial materials—such as wire, wood, paper, and rocks—stems from her desire to highlight the transitory and fragile nature of these materials. Untitled, 1993 consists of two intricate wire sculptures, exhibited next to one another. While at first glance the wire compositions appear identical, upon close examination the intricate detail of the individual sculptures is revealed. The complex nature of Gomes’ creation elevates the wire beyond an everyday material into a refined artistic medium.
