Artist

Lucia Nogueira

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. She continued her studies with a degree in journalism in Brasília, before embarking on a photography course in the United States. Initially producing paintings and drawings, by 1980 she was focusing on sculpture. In a personal and free way, her work brings together constructive elements with the presence of the body and the fragment, suggesting connections to Brazilian art of the seventies. In her sculptures and installations, she starts from discarded everyday objects to achieve asymmetry and hidden or cryptic meanings, combined with a sense of the poetic. Nogueira uses found objects that, with only minor alterations, are turned into sculpture. She died in London in 1998 aged 48.

Her work has been shown at The Drawing Room, London (1998), Fundação Serralves, Porto (2007), Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge (2011), Ikon Gallery, Birmingham (1993 and 2014) as well as other gallery exhibitions, and is in collections such as Tate, London; Fundação Serralves, Porto; Arts Council, London; University of Chicago; and MACBA, Barcelona.
