Fátima
Pecci Carou

“Her visual work is composed of paintings that dialogue with internet archives, quotes from art history and popular images from a political and feminist perspective”.

Bio

Within the panorama of contemporary artists, Fátima Pecci Carou adopts painting to think about the role of images in the construction of power and the transmission of ideas. Using a repertoire of resources and quotations that include art history, photographic archives, Japanese manga or autobiographical episodes, the artist composes paintings in which female characters in sexy poses propose a revision against the grain of history in a feminist key. The approach to everyday and domestic themes with humor and fantasy are also interesting aspects of her works.
