About Artist:

Malu Ribeiro holds a Masters of Fine arts from Pratt Institute, a Teacher Certification in Visual Arts & Theater granted by the DOE of the State of New York, and she is completing her thesis for a Masters of Art in Art History & Criticism from Stony Brook University. Malu’s training began 16 years of age, in Vigo, Spain, where she studied drawing, painting and mono-print with the Argentine surrealist Alberto Castro Couso. Malu has participated in group and solo exhibitions internationally, including Galicia, Tuscany, NY. Among the honors and awards she received are the Merrit Award bestowed by art historian & critic Donald Kuspit at the Summit International Juried Show at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. Malu finds herself in a dialogue with the entire history of art, from the Chauvet caves onward, forming part of one of the longest human traditions, that of making art, as well as with the two dimensional format (mostly) and the challenge it presents to the visual narrator. Her most recent work is a demonstration of a recent break through, a fusion of the two currents in painting which fascinate her most, which is the temporality expressed in cubism & distortion, and the ephemeral quality of light, while using a strong vibrant palette ... for Malu, the most vulnerable of human perceptions is time, her work displays either the loss of time, the bygone moment, or her attempt at 'holding on to' or freezing time ... "I paint the past in many ways. I paint the past I subjectively remember, I also paint a more universal past that never was. I'm nostalgic for an era that might have never existed. I paint longing, loss, daydreams and the lull in the afternoon, the inevitable passing of time and the attempt to hold on to it ... and stylistically, a made-up cubism, abstraction and distortions help me in the description of the ephemeral perceptions of life ..." All of her work has a dreamlike quality and a nostalgic appeal ...

About Artwork:

With a still-life there's less pressure to invent, to come up with a theme, to have something to say ... one avoids the block of the empty white canvas as soon as one begins to make marks, one mark brings the response of the next mark, and so on in a dialogue between maker, material and design ... making the process more intuitive and less conscious ... suddenly I realize that there is plenty to say..
