Statement

Roberta Masciarelli has been a graphic designer/visual artist for about 25 years.

Her early career started in Sao Paulo, Brazil - where she is from originally. 
There she worked for many advertising agencies and book publishers 
in addition to various free lance projects.

After relocating to Dallas in 1999, for about 10 years she continued her design career 
working assignments in North Texas, doing graphic and web design for several companies.

Her art are assemblages created from found objects mixed with paintings.

She says:

My art is about spaces that I sense,
places that I like to travel to in my imagination.

These spaces stay hovering in my mind until 
they take shape, piece by piece. 
They have to become real. 

Sometimes it take days, and sometimes months -- it doesn't matter. 

What matters is my task to make them concrete and to be shared with the viewer - 
other eyes and minds which will bring different interpretations. 
After all, it is always in the eyes of the beholder.

Her art has been exhibited in art events within the US in Dallas, Washington DC and New York.

Internationally, she has exhibited in collective shows in England, Holland, Denmark, 
Portugal, Spain,Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand and Bosnia, Japan & Italy.

She has a bachelor's degree in Architecture, from Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
