Byproducts: Isabel Gouveia

Connected to a world of mass production, abundant waste and environmental overload, this body of work – made with the remains of containers, plastic bands, binders, and paper boxes - become the artist’s own version of an assembly line. While the packaging used was mass generated and quickly cast off, the act of collection and reuse in a series of monotypes extend their function, leaving a remembrance of the mysterious moment of holding.

Isabel Gouveia is a South Florida based artist whose work is focused on the changing landscape, environmental awareness and the more recent effects of globalization. In Gouveia's practice, she uses nontraditional materials to create provisional drawings, paintings, prints, and digitally printed works that respond to the effects of accelerated entropy.
