“Transforming realities.
Crossing horizons. Making way.
Following dreams and painting them”
Lourdes Fisa

Lourdes Fisa is a contemporary visual artist born in Barcelona in 1964. She has lived in United States, Germany and currently resides and works in Manresa (Barcelona). She uses mainly painting and engraving techniques and is especially interested in the handling of techniques and concepts.

She has graduated in Art at the University of Barcelona, specialising in printmaking. She continued her studies in Germany (Hochschule für Bildende Künste, in Braunschweig) and in the United States of America (The School of the Art Institute of Chicago). She also made stays in printmaking workshops in England (Wilkey’s Moor workshop, Ivybridge). Since 1988 when she started exhibiting her works and until the present day she has participated more than forty individual exhibitions and seventy collective exhibitions in diverse institutions and galleries in Spain: Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao, Madrid, Zaragoza, and in other countries such as Portugal, Luxemburg, Holland, France, Italy, Germany, Canada and United States of America. Her works have been awarded several prizes and she exhibits regularly in International Art Fairs. Public and private collections have acquired some of her works.

Lourdes Fisa has a deep knowledge of the medium and the techniques required and uses them with total liberty, transcending consciously the traditional methods. This way she is able to incorporate into her works a series of mixed techniques surpassing the usual use of them. It is as if in her works you can find an artist experimenting and in constant mutation. Her initiation in printmaking marked in her work the importance of the footprint of the engraving process in some of her works, which she later developed around all types of dimensions and supports, including the large formats of earlier works. Her artistic trajectory has always been connected to the relationships of travel, discovery, identity and movement.

From 1997 onwards Lourdes, intrigued by fiber glass – mostly associated with industry and artificiality – transforms this medium into a natural material with a parchment or wax look, without forsaking her work with the more traditional paper medium, which she successfully managed to include with other supporting materials in her “installations”, and are an integral part of her exhibitions from 2004 onwards. These are always related to the space where the works are exhibited, especially her exhibition entitled A10  as well as the itinerant exhibition Camins de descoberta, Camões des del Mediterrani in Luxemburg, Lisbon and Manresa ,Atlas  in Tarragona and AQVA sobre ÁGUA more recently in Portugal. Her interest for the space and the installations establishes a dialogue with the architecture , as we see in  Transparències, the work permanently exhibited at the Cultural Center Blanca d’Anjou at l’Hospitalet de l’Infant (Tarragona).

In the report “The internationalization of Catalan Art” 032 Bonart Magazine, the spanish curator Ramon Casalé argues that Lourdes Fisa’s work is very creative and contemporary, which makes it highly valued internationally.

“With the rest of the habitual techniques, the inclusion of different coats or layers of material, shades, the “grattage” (scratching or scraping), or fiberglass with its transparencies and light effects, she creates a dynamic work that seeks new visual proposals”  (from the text The poetry of Art by Ramon Casalé).

Lourdes Fisa displays a poetic and passionate work and transmit utter sensibility towards the human condition.

Lourdes Fisa work can be seen regularly at the Sala Parés in Barcelona.

I am interested in Art as a medium of knowledge and communication in order to express concepts of space and time. I mix techniques and concepts, and then in achieving their union. My work stands for a process of introspection, based on memory and the lived experience. It is the result of a passionate search regarding material, its processing and the significance it might transmit. I use to employ mixed painting-techniques, printimaking and graphic techniques, drawing, fiberglass, etched glass and the manipulation of different materials. When using the technique of collage, I bring movement and volume into the composition through gesture, texture and colour.

Travel, discovery, identity, movement, displacements from one place to the other, transformation, the passage of time – they are all constant concepts in my work.
