Artist Statement

Patrícia Geraldes finished her degree in Painting in 2005 in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Porto University. Since then she has always sought more knowledge through contact with people, by communicating with different cultures. Moreover, it as a traveller that she started her diary collections, diaries that now she consider the basis of her entire body of work.

In her work, she collects memories, stories and hours, drawing obsessively and anxiously looking for new images. Her intention is to tell stories of time and memory through the objects that she create. The waiting time is also the time in which we revisit memories, and it is during that period that she start to develop drafts, which then she turn into large drawings and installations.

While recovering scribbles from her childhood, she creates an amalgamation of the forms she finds in Nature. Drawing can happen through the black line that comes out of her pen, but also through the wires that say words from her mouth, describing mountains and landscapes.

To climb a mountain and make a drawing, saving in her notebook the time it took to do this drawing. To Split trunks and paint their entrails, not with blooded red but with charcoal black. Anticipating their last state, before the matter is consumed by the flames and becomes part of the Earth again.

To sew words one by one stitching fabric and wood, to let them drain from the wall to the floor as drops falling from her mouth to the floor. Sensing landscapes, pre-feeling the World!

Intuited Landscape is the result of a combination between a simple, delicate and expandable act.

— André Alves, 2016

All this work is a story on how mysterious resistance is and on how nothing in it is immediately perceived or can be saved by memory.

— André Alves, 2016

Read the review


There seems to be some attempt to install order and silence in Patricia’s work, of organic manipulation, and the results present almost always in dichotomy.

— Maria Sottomayor, 2016

Even before it exists (being seen) the thing is already conscious of itself, as appearing to possess a wonderful ability to interfere with our thoughts so it removes its image out of there.

— Cláudia Lopes, 2015
