PILAR  OVALLE

PILAR OVALLE

PILAR OVALLE Biography

"(Pilar Ovalle’s) strength lies in the watchful crafting of her wood, often worked with real delicacy; in her symbolic fantasy and dreamlike features, in her visceral humor.” - Waldemar Sommer, “El Mercurio”

Born in Santiago, Chile, Pilar Ovalle began her studies in 1989 at the Instituto de Arte Contemporáneo de Santiago. She studied with the Instituto through the early '90s, during which time she also won Third Prize at the XV Concurso de Arte Joven (Young Art Contest) and received grants from Fondart (National Fund for the Arts) for her projects “Sculpture with Shattered Wood” and “Curved Wood Sculpture using Chilote Techniques.”

A recipient of a variety of awards and recognitions, Ovalle was invited by the Museu Oscar Niemayer of Curitiba for a solo exhibition of 44 of her sculptures displayed in a 2,000 square meter space. Sponsored by the Government of the State of Paraná, the exhibition was also later shown at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes of Santiago.
