Isabel Barahona (Cascais, 1974), plastic artist, teacher, has a background in sculpture, painting, glass and drawing (Ar.Co, 1993/96) and He completed his postgraduate degree in Painting at FBAUL (2005/06). He studied painting in Brussels and is a graduate student. PhD in Visual Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia. In 2013, in the context of a post-doctorate, she received a scholarship from Rennes 2 University where she developed an investigation into the origins of the project for an online archive on artists' books and editions. Authorship in Portugal. He began his artistic career in 2001 with a solo exhibition entitled “mythologies and has since participated in several individual and collective exhibitions, in Portugal and abroad, among which the collective exhibition stands out in 2018 with the title “Ar” at the Faro Municipal Museum. Vasco Vidigal, who spoke about him (Artadentro, Museu Municipal de Faro, 2009/2010) evokes the purpose of the series presented in 2003 “tu es mon pays” the “memory of the process of making” which transforms the pictorial surface into a “landscape marked and revealing the action of time”. A process that deepens later, bringing together circumstances and external phenomena in the space of an assumed intimacy. (…) This kind of “introspective drift” starting to use drawing “as a privileged form of investigation and inventory” of the feminine condition. In a relationship always assumed between the lyrical coordinates of an intimate and wonderful world and an invasive and hostile reality. The four linocuts he currently presents, an interaction between subjective writings with a pronounced lyrical aspect with backgrounds reminiscent of digital prints, reflect his previous concerns and path. The inscriptions of words on the skin that seem to symbolize the subtle tissue of the soul: “now here to tell you time to want you mouth”, “tattoo me and sing with me”, “ now here”, “telling you that I love you”, “time between us”, have the meaning of a loving dialogue desired and always interrupted by all the external vicissitudes that threaten its plenitude.< /p>
