2006-2007 Residents

Henriques’s work revolves around the understanding of the concept of “Perception”. The guidelines of her research are defined by drawing, geometry, philosophy and optical phenomena. The resulting body of work consists of drawing machines and contemplative objects in space highlighting the relationship between artwork and human body.

In 1999, Teresa earned a degree in Drawing at the Fine Arte National Society, Lisbon, followed in 2001 by Live-Painting at Slade School of London. She then graduated from the Fine Arts Department at AR.CO, Lisbon in 2004. Recent exhibitions include: Feira de Madrid ARCO (2006); in 2005: Contemporaneous Art Fair in Lisbon; “Post-it”, Porto; Carlos Carvalho Art Gallery, Lisbon; “13:SETE”, Seven art Gallery, Coimbra; “GPO31031405”; Pedro Oliveira gallery, Porto, where she is represented.

Teresa’s residency at Location One is supported by Gulbenkian Foundation and Luso American Foundation for Development.
