Luísa Jacinto
Lisbon, Portugal, 1984. Lives and works in Lisbon.


The works of Luísa Jacinto are located in the threshold between figuration and abstraction. Luísa Jacinto concentrates on the canvas, screen or work surface as a central thing. Her artistic practice deals with the protocols of the image, narratives fragmentation and simulation, the excess of evidence and obscuration.
