Maria de Lima (b. 1985)

Maria de Lima (b.1985, Recife, Brazil) studied at Camberwell College of Art before going on to complete an MA in Fine Art at Royal Academy Schools in 2015. Her work uses a visual aesthetic driven by colour within film, installation and painting, engaging with language as a colonising tool through a feminist lens. She explores how the imposition of language can extend territory and create complex overlays where identities and cultures intersect, and conflicting ideas inhabit our bodies.

Recent shows include A Union of Voices at Horatio Jr, London, Concientia: Latin American Consciousness at Lloyds Club, London, and Macy Dott at Scawfell Street, London, following a three month residency. De Lima was awarded the Peter Rippon New York Travel Scholarship in 2014.
