Isabel Gouveia is a multidisciplinary artist who uses painting, printmaking, and installation in addition to her digital printing process. She is interested in processes and non-traditional materials for creating art, which she alters to generate unique results to convey her ideas of transformation.
With this series called "Mined," she investigates brushless painting processes and a mixture of paints applied repeatedly to allow various marks and crusts to randomly appear, as happens with the geology of terrains of surprising uniqueness and designs. Her work and research have focused on changing landscapes, environmental awareness, and the more recent effects of globalization.
She lives and works in West Palm Beach, Florida, and São Paulo, SP, Brazil. She holds a degree in Industrial Design from FAAP-Fundação de Artes Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo and a master’s degree in fine arts from FAU-Florida Atlantic University, FL.
Since then, she has received awards such as the Artist Innovation of Palm Beach County, 2020; the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship, 2017; and has been selected for artist residencies such as Oxbow, Michigan, 2012; VCCA Fellowship in Virginia, 2016 and France 2018, and in IS Projects, Fort Lauderdale, FL, 2018. Participates in exhibitions such as IPCNY (New York Print Center) in New York, 2011, Bienal de Gravura no Douro, 2016 and Bienal de Cervejas 2018, Portugal.
