Project “Islas del dibujo: trazos comunes”
After studying Fine Art at the Facultad de Bellas Artes de Sant Jordi, Barcelona (1971-1975), for the next decade (1976-1986) Dolores Sampol was involved in the preservation and restoration of paintings. She has exhibited her work regularly since the mid-1980s, both individually and collectively, in Palma, Madrid, Barcelona, Girona, Bilbao, Pamplona, Seville, Valencia, Camagüey (Cuba), Washington D.C. (United States), Berlin, Moscow, and Athens. Likewise she has taken part in important international art fairs such as Art Chicago (1992 and 1998); Arco, Madrid (1998, 1999, and 2002); Estampa, Madrid (1995, 2002, and 2003); Artíssima, Turin, Italy (1999); Art Miami (2000); Art Karlsruhe, Germany, (2007); Art Beijing, Stand España, Peking, China (2015), and Drawing Room, Madrid (2018).
With the use of a rigorous technique, Dolores Sampol approaches drawing in an intimate manner with a mastery that also extends to painting and resorts to elements of nature. A keen observer of the natural world down to the most minute details of the landscape, the artist associates drawing of naturalist inspiration with its actual point of reference to create harmonious and poetic compositions.
