En.cruz.ilha.das - urban legends and magic crossroads Exhibition of wearable art,
drawings and prints

The interlaced silver and gold ribbon Patricia Gurgel-Segrillo uses to create her
wearable art series hint of the social fabric of Rio de Janeiro State, where Patricia grew up.
A place where strands of wealth and poverty, ethics and violence,
culture and corruption are constantly intertwining.

Upon moving to Cork City she has been creating a group of drawings,
deepening her exploration on cross-cultural identity, empowerment and femininity
- subjects which are a constant in her work.

The drawings series has been influenced by the afro-Brazilian orixas.
These are deities or divinities, which are such a great part of Brazilian culture.
Patricia’s representations portray them as ancient (or maybe futuristic?)
heroes and sages, inhabitants of the urban landscapes, full of magic as well
as power and a profound sense of self-worth, of dignity.

P Gurgel-Segrillo's Tradigital Art series #1 is featured on HESA Inprint

“I Have The Right to Freedom”

Tradigital art series #1 was influenced by the great photojournalism masters and
their humanity and by the Film Noir directors with their gloomy grays and blacks and whites,
with their dark and inhumane side of human nature, emphasizing the brutal,
unhealthy, shadowy and dark side of the human experience.

And it was inspired by Cordel Literature: the popular and inexpensively printed booklets
containing short stories, poems and songs, which are produced and sold by street vendors
mainly in the Northeast of Brazil, where the artist’s mother is from.

They came from the “papel volante” tradition of Portugal and are usually
produced in black and white and illustrated with woodcuts.

The cordeis talk about popular day-to-day life concerns and offer a direct insight
of the true living conditions of the population and the rituals, superstitions
and behaviors adopted in order to cope with life’s trials and tribulations.

These rituals, superstitions and behaviors repeat and repeat and repeat and numb us
to the pain but only to offer another form of “prison.”
One that we make ourselves.

Tradigital art series #1 - original pencil on paper drawings worked digitally and printed
as archival quality fine art prints on Hahnemuhle 100% Rag based paper, with pigment inks.
Signed and numbered by the artist in limited editions of 25.



Patricia Gurgel-Segrillo is delighted and honored to have been selected for CRAFTed
Crafts Council of Ireland Education Panel which aims for the development and delivery
of training programmes relating to the Visual Arts curriculum at primary level.



“He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sun rise.”
