Artist Spotlight No. 7 – Dolores Furtado

ARTIST STATEMENT

Dolores Furtado (b.1977, Buenos Aires, Argentina) lives and works in New York. Her practice is based on her interest in matter, which she exposes in a raw, naked way: matter becomes body. In a wide range of formats and sizes, her sculptures highlight process, through tactile marks, scratches, and object-based prints. She thinks of her sculptures as documentations of process and action.
