Catarina Garcia is a young artist from Lisbon, Portugal.
Her work is based mostly on the creative process itself. Through the techniques of drawing, painting and printmaking, Catarina is constantly challenging her own notions of composition, art and aesthetics. Because it is a process based on trial and error, there is a continuous evolution throughtout the years of practice.
The human figure is one of the main themes in her work, however, it is also strongly based on the development of compositions in an intuitive and experimental way.
