Marcia Brito is a visual artist currently producing conceptual works driven by social and environmental issues. Brito creates in mixed media, photography, painting, sculpture and ceramics depending on the concept of each individual project with which she gets involved.
Brito’s artwork is largely influenced by her community and natural environment and it is at the same time informed by contemporary theory, criticism and broader culture. Brito strives to pose profound questions with her work while conducting extensive experimentation with art form, media and content. Brito explores a multitude of materials and tests their limits by researching and developing new ways of using these materials and the content relationship they imply.
Brito believes art can play a vital role in society by raising awareness of key issues facing the community. She hopes that her work can inform viewers, challenge existing beliefs and foster discussion on ways to improve our way of life.
