Catia Goffinet

Catia Goffinet

Born: 1973

Hometown: São Paulo

Based in: São Paulo

I am passionate about lines, colors and shapes.

In my art I try to find a bridge between straight lines and the sensitivity of art.

Transforming geometric shapes into art is my biggest challenge. I seek a new vision for geometrism that goes beyond colors and shapes. Sometimes I look for an organic sense for these lines. If everything in the universe is mathematical, there is mathematics in everything, including the curved lines of nature.

I bring within my art profound questions about the universe we know and especially the one we don't know. Imagining the universe as something mathematical and materializing these questions is part of my quest.

I believe that everything is energy. We emanate energy. This energy is felt inside and outside of us ... it is like a clothes we wear but we cannot see it. I like to paint the energy.

I work with layers of transparency showing the idea of ​​energy, movement and infinity. Sometimes dozens of layers. Other unique layers.

My work varies between pure geometric shapes in combinations of diptics, triptych and quadratytics and at other times in more organic and colorful works.

I like to work with cheerful colors and unusual combinations but I am also passionate about monochromatic works.

I live in one of the largest urban forests in the world: in the middle of the Atlantic Forest, in the Serra da Cantareira, in São Paulo. I am surrounded by the green of the forest, the blue of the sky and the beauty of the flowers during the 365 years of the year. I like to put these colors in some of my artwork. It is part of what I am.

More About Catia Goffinet

IconInspires

What inspires you?

The search for a new way of looking at straight lines inspires me. The possibility of creating beyond the obvious with lines and shapes is my goal. From the simplicity of pure forms to the complexity of what is possible to look at from a new angle.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

My creative process ranges from scientific themes, quantum physics, forms of the solar system to internal issues of who we are and where we are. I believe that we are energy and I like to paint that energy. I like deep internal issues but I do not disregard the simplicity of pure lines and simple shapes such as the combination of colors that I find in my garden.

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Energy, Lines, Colors

When I started painting I was inspired by Vasarely. I think it's amazing what he can do with simple lines. It looked like magic. Frank Stella is also one of my great references.

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

Be light. Feel free. Detachment. Creating for the sheer pleasure of creating is my main work tool.
