Paper, Paint and Travel  is an exhibition of current works by Brazilian artist Maria do Ceu Diel. Maria is a professor at Federal University of Minas Gerais, in Fine Arts. She has studied metal engraving and drawing, and admires and uses photography as part of her paintings. This exhibition is part of a large series of images created during study trips between 1998 and 2011 to Venice, Naples, Sicily and Taranto, in Italy. Places she refers to as  ‘places of the heart’.


Included are copper plate etchings and engravings from the rain series. Gestural and rich, these prints show a skill born of years landscape and figurative drawing.
