To celebrate the 22nd Anniversary of Macau Handover, Albergue SCM invited Portuguese renowned artist Catarina Castel-Branco to hold the solo exhibition “Between the Flower and the Haze” in Albergue SCM. Born in Abrantes in 1956, the artist was graduated from the School of Fine Arts and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy of Amsterdam.
Since 1983, she has presented over 30 individual exhibitions in engraving, painting and drawing, and had participated in over 70 group exhibitions organized by various national and overseas institutions. In 1987 she was awarded the National Engraving Exhibition Prize by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Gravura Cooperative. She has been a teacher of Drawing at the Design Department of the Lusophone University of Humanities and Technologies since 1996.
This exhibition features 13 latest acrylic works by the artist. Inspired by the round windows commonly seen in Japanese traditional housing, the works convey the serenity and tranquil quality of the oriental aesthetics.
