Simone Cupello began their artistic process through cinema and architecture, and landed on visual art starting in 2013. Their works rest fundamentally on the resource of photography and the image in an extended field. The unconventional use of appropriated photographs, viewed by the artist as "technological waste" and gathered in bundles, points to where its research develops: the materiality of the image and, along with it, the antagonistic issues inherent to it, such as technology. The great collection of photographs collected during this period by the artist makes it possible to create installations and sculptures that when sculpted often assume organic forms similar to those of nature, such as stones, shells, cracks and reliefs.
Some of the artist's solo exhibitions are: Jardim de Yeda, Central Gallery (São Paulo, SP, 2018); Environments, Centro Cultural Cândido Mendes de Ipanema (Rio de Janeiro, RJ, 2017); Private Looks , Federal Justice Cultural Center (Rio de Janeiro, RJ, 2016); Extracampos , "Same Place" Project of Hermes Visual Arts, Qualcasa (São Paulo, SP, 2015)
