Through drawings and strokes, Fabiana Comas Risquez (Caracas, Venezuela) gaze goes to the essentials of objects, nature, and the human body. Her marks are gestures that respond to the physical impulse to draw, turn over, and evoke what is recycled in her memory to represent or transform experiences. She experiments with the shape of the human body to explore femininity and queerness. Comas is interested in the contemplation of lines, studies on nature, and the abstraction of daily circumstances. Between 2019 and 2022, Comas lived in the indigenous community of Yirrkala in East Arnhem Land, Australia, where she worked for Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre. Her work has been exhibited in Venezuela, Mexico, Australia, the United States, and Japan. She has been an artist in residency at MASS MoCA, Massachusetts, and Laguna in Mexico City. Currently, she is a fellow artist at the RAiR Foundation in Roswell, New Mexico, USA.
