Patricia Dauder (1973) is an artist based in Barcelona. Her work evolves around seeing and representing beyond what´s apparent. The study and experimentation of form, matter, and structure constitute the means through which the artist perceives, interprets, and projects her sensations about space and the passing of time. The final morphologies that appear in a variety of media - drawings, films, textiles, objects or photographs - are the result of long working processes in which a dialogue is established between observation of the world, abstraction of perceptions, and material manipulation. Presence and absence, whole and fragment, mass and void, waste and trace in nature and man-made elements, are concepts that echo in the fragile forms that come out after succesive processes of doing, redoing, addition and substraction.
Dauder studied at Facultat de Belles Arts, in Barcelona, and at Ateliers Arnhem, The Netherlands. Since 1998, she has shown widely throughout Europe, and occasionally in United States and Canada.
