Damaris Pan Ana Mas Projects announces the representation of Damaris Pan 

24 Nov 2022

After the closing of ‘Un martillo en la cabeza’, Damaris Pan’s first individual exhibition at the gallery, Ana Mas Projects is delighted to announce the representation of the Basque artist. A new collaboration that will have national and international scope and will focus on working towards the development of her body of work and increasing her presence in institutional, public and private collections.

Damaris Pan (Mallabia, 1983), lives and works in Bilbao. Her paintings reveal a peculiar language of shapes, densities and colour palettes whose outcome is not subject to specific themes. Along with her clear concern for materiality and corporality, Damaris Pan works with persistence on the possibilities of constructiveness, going for the autonomy of the pictorial work. This way, she claims art as a place for knowledge from experience, from where she questions the limits of the pictorial and life.

Among her most recent exhibitions is worth mentioning the solo shows ‘Un martillo en la cabeza’ at Ana Mas Projects (Barcelona, 2022), ‘Veri Pery’ at Halfhouse (Barcelona, ​​2022), ‘Cuernos a la Vista’ at BilbaoArte (2020), the duo Sugaar with Fiona Mackay at the Cibrián gallery (Donostia, 2021), and the group show ‘Turno de Réplica’ at Patio Herreriano Museum curated by Javier Hontoria (Valladolid, 2021). She has recently been awarded the Gure Artea 2021 Prize, in the category of recognition of artistic practice. In addition, in 2021 she has been one of the recipients of the annual Eremuak’s Artistic Practice Grant.

Her work is part of national collections such as Colección Artium Museoa, “la Caixa” Foundation, Juntas Generales de Bizkaia, Colección Fundación BilbaoArte and Colección Modus vivendi of Fernando Garate; and international collections such us the Francis J. Greenburger, Time Equities, Inc., or The Art OMI Collection, both in USA.
