Gisele Camargo

Gisele Camargo’s career started in 1990’s in Rio de Janeiro, where the urban typology influenced her early works and led to her growing interest in architectural shapes and constructions. Whilst its true that the Rio de Janeiro depicted in postcards couldn’t be more different from the Rio experienced by its inhabitants, she engaged in depicting both its facets, at times through reduced forms, in other works through colour and composition, her vision of the city expanding and becoming familiar in her scales of grey and sharp corners. In 2018, the artist relocated her studio and home to the natural reserve of Cipó, situated in Jaboticatubas’s Cerrado biome, near Belo Horizonte. This change deeply influenced Camargo’s practice as she started to discover new landscapes, above and below the earth, which became the source for her most recent body of work. Stones, erosions and flora all become departure points for her elaborated abstract constructions which resonate with nature, the environment and their power. In this everlasting exploration of the landscape, often the artist turns to overlooked and underneath lawyers of the natural landscape with the same intensity as to inhabited corners of the city. Camargo’s oeuvre is largely engaged in a relation between human existence and its surroundings, considering current affairs and the emergency of climate change, being in Cipó itself one of the endangered sites in Brazil, she reduces the distance between the urban and rural, the landscape’s material existence and the painting that becomes a landscape itself.
