Margarette Mattos is a expressionist abstract painter. Pieces contain mixing iron ore fines with pigments, waxes, varnishes and acrylic paint. Her paintings are characterized by bold colors and texture contrasts. Margarette’s facination withe the colors and textures of iron ore began a couple years ago while involved in visual and architectural research in her hometown Vitória, Espírito Santo. During her research process she watched the coming and going of ships loaded with iron ore extracted from the Brazilian regions of Itabira in Minas Gerais and Serra dos Carajás in Pará. Margarette will use this original mixed media technique in the Windows series she is producing for the CSArt share, creating fifty, iron ore images inspired by the cities of Brazil.
