LINDA DE SOUSA (DSC), ART CRITIC
Linda de Sousa, born Portuguese, nationalized Spanish, - “Spanish of adoption”, as noted by the writer María Tecla Portela Carreiro, good connoisseur of the artist and her work-, and registered in Madrid, as Madrid of heart, accumulates a long and prolific career in the field of plastic arts, within which she has also worked as a teacher, in her own workshop, as well as a curator and jury of numerous exhibitions and contest, in many of which has been the designer of their assemblies and their catalogs. She began her creative career in the eighties, as a figurative painter, very close to expressionism, but her irrepressible concerns led her to the exploration of new expressive territories, arriving at the field of the “matérico” (from material), which Millares brought to the Spanish art world's consideration, finally situating her creations of performances and installations, in the space of intersection between the formalism and the conceptual, always printing to her works a differentiating personal character, which emanates from her vitalism and unwavering connection with the universe of painting, as well as her empirical conviction of “how fragile are women in front of violence”, according to her own words, within her “sui generis”, active feminism.
Let's say, then, that in her intellectual maturity and vital fullness, her activity in the art world embraces all the prepositive scope and develops it with all the vigor and rigor that gives to it her energetic and creative temperament, which imprints character to all her works, actions and activities.
With this background of knowledge and experience in the different disciplinary fields of the art world and under the impetus of her unstoppable capacity for entrepreneurship, Linda de Sousa rehearses in the field of art criticism, which deals well equipped with skills, knowledge and talent for its exercise.
Having made the decision, she successively joins the Madrid Association of Art Critics (AMCA), the Spanish Association of Art Critics (AECA) and the International Association of Art Critics (AICA), exercising her skills with rigor and clarity of ideas, which grants her and deserves her broad professional curriculum, inside the art world.
