Dulce Gómez

Dulce Gómez (Caracas, Venezuela, 1967) lives and works in Caracas. She studied art at the Escuela de Artes Visuales Cristóbal Rojas between 1983 and 1986. From the beginning of her career she has been interested in working with three media: painting, assembly, and installation. In 2009 she moved to New York thanks to a residency program for artists living outside the United States offered by The Bronx Museum of the Arts. There, she had the opportunity to attend the seminar Artist in the Market Place (AIM), where she realized the differences between working in her usual workshop in Caracas and outside of it.

From the beginning of her career Gómez has been actively showing her work in local and international exhibitions. She is currently pursuing a master's degree in fine arts at the Universidad Central de Venezuela (2015-2017). The thesis she is developing consists of research on painting as an individual visual representation system, the relationship between painting and memory as part of the act of painting, and the role played by intuition as a vision that anticipates the future in the present, activated by the imagination.
