CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

ANOTHER HEAD ON A THINKING HAND
Prints by Catarina Coelho
March 5 – April 23, 2017

Artist’s Reception:  Sunday, March 5, 4 – 6pm

The series of prints presented are part of a collection of portraits and self-portraits, imagined or from life, created in the past couple of years. The desire to reveal and express the character and identity of the portrayed led me to a great deal of experimentation with the print medium. Reduction and color monotypes, etchings, collagraphs, relief printing, and digital drawings are some of the techniques and processes used to create this portrait collection. The reduction monotype in black portraying Judith or the collagraph monoprint representing Pantheistic Isabel, for instance, attempt to show how subject and process can be intimately related.

Catarina Coelho studied painting and printmaking at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon and at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan, Italy.  She also studied Philosophy of Art at the Faculty of Letters of the University of Lisbon, and received an MFA in Printmaking from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.  Since 2004, Catarina Coelho has been exhibiting her work in Portugal, Spain and in the US.  Catarina Coelho is currently a Visiting Lecturer in the 2D Department at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and she was recently granted the A.R.T. Fund from the Berkshire Taconic Foundation.
