Tutor: Constanza Briceno
Constanza Briceno was born, raised and educated in Santiago de Chile. Her artistic practice has been inspired by a handwritten calligraphy notebook from childhood. Her work has been shown in Buenos Aires, Santiago, Temuco, Valdivia, Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Tauranga. In 2001, she obtained Baccalaureate degree in Art from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Since then, she has been involved in different studios, group and solo exhibitions. She currently lives and works in Papamoa, New Zealand.
Constanza has been concerned with how mistakes are perceived and the way society deals with imperfections, creating uniformity and standards for us to live by. The impact of this on our psyche creates a discomfort that, for Briceno, drives an artistic production that aims to show not only the beauty, but the importance of mistakes and imperfections through process and repetition.
She creates these paintings through a process she called methodical disorder and the abstracted structures often recall landscapes and experiences.
