Patricia Dauder

Barcelona-based artist Patricia Dauder (1973) has developed a body of work that hinges on the acts of seeing and representing more than meets the eye. By studying and experimenting with form, matter and structure, she observes, interprets and projects her perceptions of space and the passing of time. The final shapes that materialise in a variety of media—drawings, films, fabrics, objects and photographs—are the result of protracted working processes which involve a three-way dialogue between the observation of the world, the abstraction of perceptions, and material manipulation. The concepts of presence and absence, part and whole, mass and void, trace and footprint in nature and manmade elements resonate in the fragile forms that emerge from successive processes of making, remaking, adding and subtracting.
