Glasgow International 2020

Maria de Lima

Maria de Lima (b. 1985 in Recife, Brazil) lives and works in Glasgow, UK.  De Lima’s practice delves into the possibilities of colour and perception in the production of place. Recurring motifs readjust in various media. Works move between plant, human, and the human-built, tapping a spontaneous energy of growth that draws on human need, full of desire, to construct. There is a constant locating and relocating of the point of genesis, the energy that it takes to create something. 

Exhibitions include: An Exit Soft To The Touch, ANDOR, London, UK; December Mostra, British School at Rome, Rome, Italy; Modest Villa Immense Versailles, Kinman Gallery, London, UK; Outpost Members’ Show Selected by Nik Void, Outpost, Norwich, UK; Royal Academy Schools Show, Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK; Conscientia: Latin American Consciousness, Lloyds Club, London, UK.

For Cleave, six artists working across sound, sculpture, video, painting, photography and performance will install their artwork across three arches in a dynamic format that switches between minimal/maximal space and male/female artists.

The word ‘cleave’ means both to split and to adhere to – embodying acts of divergence, as well as convergence. Cleave begins as a concept split along natural lines of being that, when taken as a whole, establishes a common artistic expression linking the three arches into one coherent whole.

Supported by WAVEparticle as part of the award-winning Laurieston Art Strategy: Open Spaces.

Fri 20 April – Mon 7 May
