With a reflection on environmental problems and the consequences of unbridled consumption, to Sesc/RS Virtual Gallery ends the season with the exhibition "Dichotomy: Luxury x Trash”, by artist Simone Rosa, of Santa Maria. A mostra on-line, which is composed of 18 paintings made of 2018 to 2020, it has an audio description and can be visited for free on the website. www.sesc-rs.com.br/galeriavirtual. Eight other exhibitions by artists from the state of Rio Grande do Sul are also available in the space., in addition to complementary materials such as podcasts, mediation videos and exercises.
in the works, luxury is represented by draped fabrics and garbage by scraps of discarded fabrics. These two dichotomous points interact when the canvas seams, made with cutouts, interfere with tissue representation, deconstructing reality through transparency and generating unusual compositions. The latter have the interference of hummingbird flocks, representing the pursuit of feelings of pure love, care, kind, renaissance, softness, happiness, enthusiasm, grace, delicacy, harmony, truth and strength, that are needed at this stage in which humanity is living.
Natural of Santa Maria, Simone Rosa started her career in 1987, with the first awards in salons, followed by group and individual exhibitions, before completing a degree in Fine Arts at UFSM in 1989.

Currently, studying for a PhD in Design & Technology by UFRGS and dedicated to painting.
Simone's artistic production has several reflections, permeating different recurring themes that intertwine in its poetic path and are present in elements such as unusual scenarios, antique furniture, ancient architecture, patterned fabrics, female nudes, More expensive, Mandalas, hummingbirds and angels. the deconstruction, based on overlap and freedom to create, is the way to build your visual poetry, who found support in the videos (facilities), in digital prints, in drawings and especially in paintings, which initially were on conventional canvases and gradually moved to constructed and/or reused supports, loaded with concern for the environment.
