Luisa Almeida works with large wood printmaking, researching alternative printing techniques. The high contrast in woodprints dialogues with her thematic, for it explores fire guns being held by women and little girls in daily life, investigating the society’s symbolic relations towards this object. Professionally engaged on scenography for opera and theater, Luisa incorporates scenic resources to her artwork, producing xylographic installations using stage elements. Researching alternative printing techniques, she uses vehicles, fork-lifts and steamrollers as part of the creative process. Currently attending Master’s program in Visual Arts, UNESP.
