Adriana Molder: The Light in the Heart at Art Plural Gallery

September 25, 2013

Discover Portuguese artist Adriana Molder's solo exhibition 'The Light in the Heart' at Art Plural Gallery, which was held from June - July 2014. In this video we uncover some of the themes addressed by the artist, and explore the narratives within her rich artistic language. 

Born in 1975 in Lisbon, Adriana Molder has developed a unique body of work consisting of black and white portraits using India ink on tracing paper. Inspired by iconic figures mostly taken from films, Adriana Molder continues to incorporate in her work various references from literature to existing histories, old masters paintings and random images found in magazines. Cinematographic repertoire always plays an important role in her work as the depicted characters seem to unfold a narrative and express themselves beyond their static portrayal position.
