Weiss' (b. 1953, São Paulo) recent series initiate a search, through familiar photographic material that, through a nostalgic, reflexive trip of memories are transformed into a visual search of textures, mixture of colors, shade and light. The photographs are in some way models, intensified in the dialogue with the painting. She is a professor of art, a master printmaker, but her work also includes, photography, painting, object art and artists books. The catalogue includes critic texts by Leon Kossovitch, Norval Baitello Júnior, Evandro Carlos Jardim and Renina Katz.
