Berta Cáccamo

Vigo, 1963


A graduate in Fine Arts from the San Jordi School of Barcelona, Berta Cáccamo completed her studies with a Doctorate in Barcelona and later in Pontevedra.
Her painting is abstract and conceptual, within non-figuration, with broad spots of subdued tones and mastery of ochers and blacks.
There is a geometric composition in her works -usually large format canvases- which include vague formal references.
In her drawings she proposes a poetic and colorist game related to the automatic writing of the Surrealists, as opposed to the deliberate effort to change the use of the color she shows in her paintings.
Her work is present in the Galician Center for Contemporary Art, in the Museum of Pontevedra and in private collections such as Union Fenosa in A Coruña.
In 2017 she received the Galician Culture Prize for the Plastic Arts.
