Opening Reception: May 16, 2019 from 7–10 p.m.
FAB Gallery
Admission is free

Tamires' art depicts the multiple facets of her experience growing up in Brazilian patriarchal society. Her painting practice focuses on reflections about the scarring that patriarchal society has imprinted on herself and how it shaped her world views and self-esteem; a small sample of the sustained trauma women have to endure under patriarchy.

This body of paintings is the result of working from the imagery of herself and from the model. She sees their bodies as clay for her to digitally shape, distort, and scar; they are the bridge that gaps our experience of trauma. Through art, she seeks to engage in a cathartic process which she shares in this exhibition.

This exhibition is the final visual presentation for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Painting.
