Goia Mujalli

(b 1985Brazil. )

Mujalli’s paintings of fictional tropical spaces reach out for longed-for realities. Her process begins with intuition, colour, rhythm, mark making and movement, which create room for her tropical memories to reappear. She tries to recreate specific emotions and human conditions such as sentimentality, celebration and euphoria. Underlying her work is a search for repetitive motifs that can consistently reproduce this celebratory mood.
