Bio: Vera Costa resided in SF for 10 years, making pieces based on her path through life, her familial narrative and as a female in the present age.
Her works incorporate a weaving tale of heritage and identity, played out in texture and discoloration as it unfolds into the woman as creator, and the pieces as the "created". Vera's works speak to a rich web of ancestral belongings, feminine identity and the struggle between the traditional roles held between genders and those updated roles that inherently shape a modern woman.
Born in Brazil, based in San Francisco. B.A. and M.A. at Feevale University-RS-Brazil.
