Description
Claudia Pombo’s sumptuous oil paintings mix lush nature images with surreal touches. Pombo portrays many different subjects, from opulent landscapes to faces and figures. She sometimes zooms in on a certain element – the spray of mist caused by water falling into a pool, or the wispiness of clouds. In other compositions the perspective draws back, often with a thought-provoking, skewed angle. Pombo is interested in texture and the power of immersion, using saturated colors and deep shadows. She describes her work as trying “to draw my own experiences but giving some plasticity and adaptability to them.” Each piece has a unique angle that shifts the narrative into the world of the unreal. Skin is peeled back to reveal a sky full of stars. A rosebush features a single eye among its blooms.
A self-taught artist, she also works in watercolor, mixed media and illustration. The rich mythology of Brazil and South American have been strong influences on her illustration work. Pombo was born in Natal, northeast Brazil, was raised in Niteroi and has lived in Rio de Janeiro as well as several European cities. She currently lives in Amsterdam.

About the Exhibition
The exhibition Divergent Realities gently guides the viewer through an emotional tour from tranquility to insensibility. Maryhelen Ewing’s calm landscapes and Giorgio Linda’s lithe, poignant subjects prepare visitors for a trip down the rabbit hole, as the works quickly segue into the shattered and surreal still lifes of the late Robert Paul Saphier, or the frantic abstract whirlwinds of color by Kristina Garon. All of the artists in the exhibition offer unquestionable talent in their varied media, and the resulting show is an experience to behold.
