Born in Goiânia, Brazil, in 1950, but established in London since 1975, Lucia Nogueira studied painting at Chelsea School of Art and Design and the Central School of Art, followed by a degree in journalism in Brasilia and photography studies in the United States. Although she started with painting and drawing, in the late 1980s she began to focus on sculpture. In a very personal way and with great freedom, her work unites objects and constructive elements with a sense of the body and the idea of fragmentation, linking her with the Brazilian tradition of the seventies. Her sculptures and installations used commonplace or discarded objects that were minimally-intervened to achieve an asymmetry revealing hidden, cryptic or poetic meaning. Nogueira died in London in 1998 at the age of 48. Her work has been exhibited at The Drawing Room, London (1998); Fundação Serralves, Porto (2007); Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge (2011); Ikon Gallery, Birmingham (1993 and 2014); and in various galleries. It is included in collections such as Tate, London; Fundação Serralves, Porto; Arts Council, London; University of Chicago; and MACBA, Barcelona.
