Sidnea D’Amico was born in Brazil where she studied photography and jewelry design.  She settled in the U.S. where she developed her career as an artist. Her main mediums are acrylic and mixed media collage.

“In my work I am constantly translating a story I have in mind into images. I explore the relationship between representational and abstract imagery expanding my visual vocabulary. My process involves building a surface, and then scratching away most of what was originally painted. As I scratch I become in touch, literally and metaphorically with the painting. Some images survive, others are buried, some remain large while others become more intimate in scale“.
Damico’s works have been included in group exhibitions at Reaves Galllery, Southern Exposure, SOMArts, Mission Cultural Center in San Francisco, Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, Pamela Skinner Gallery in Sacramento and recently at San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art in San Jose.
