Adriana Rocha

Adriana Rocha was born in 1959 in São Paulo, where she graduated in Arts from Armando Álvares Penteado Foundation in 1980 and soon began her artistic career.    

 

Her work always contemplates the question of time. Through paintings and drawings, she tries to deal with the traces left by this passage, manipulating images to speak of those traces and footprints. The interferences she often makes over printed images creates a mixed practice and evidences the artificiality of its constitution as landscape and its construction as a metaphor.  

 

Among the most recent exhibitions are solo   exhibitions at Colorida Galeria de Arte in Lisbon (2010), PanAmerican Art Projects in Dallas (2007), Galeria Referência in Brasília (2016) and AM Galeria de Arte in São Paulo (2012) ; SP-Arte and Art Rio  in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 and Solo show at Galeria Rabieh (2017); Group show in AM Galeria de Arte, in São Paulo (2012) and in Belo Horizonte (2014), as well as public urban intervention projects in 2004, 2005 and 2012. She has works in public collections, such as Museu de Arte Brasileira, in São Paulo, Casa das Onze Janelas, in Belém, Museu de Arte Contemporânea in Americana, Museum of Latin American Art, Los Angeles, Instituto Itaú Cultural, Musee d'Art de Bobigny, among others.
