Dolores Sanchez Calvo

         

Dolores’s work explores notions of anomie, ontological crises and the dislocation of the emotional from the physical and intellectual dimensions of selfhood. Her work seeks to challenge the often sanitised and anodyne aesthetic of trauma, grief and mourning.
The depiction of individuals deliberately removed from identifiable contexts seeks to confront the viewer with a series of parsed images; these suggest a narrative that can appear raw and disturbing but open up to different interpretations to different viewers.
Since relocating to the UK, the artist has frequently exhibited internationally and in the UK. In the UK, she featured in the National Portrait Gallery 2007 Photographic Portrait competition and as a winner of the Westminster Arts Photographic Award (2008).
