ArtBook - Sonia Gomes

28694

No reviews
This first monograph on the extraordinary Afro-Brazilian sculptor Sonia Gomes (born 1948) brings together around 100 images of her works. The book traces the path of this artist who, by transforming found and donated materials such as fabric and wire by twisting, tying and sewing, creates sculptures that describe her history as an artist of African descent. Born in Caetanópolis, a town with an important textile industry, Gomes grew up in the midst of textile factories and the strong presence of her grandmother—a black woman, a healer and a midwife, who taught her everything about the basics of sewing. The book includes essays by curators Ricardo Sardenberg and Solange Farkas, as well as a textual work by artist Paulo Nazareth made especially for this volume.
