Cecília Marques Dalcanale started in the arts after the loss of her mother in 1998. She is the daughter of an artist who claimed to be only painter of porcelain, but left more than 200 works, including porcelains, paintings, ceramic glazings among others and used to make portraits of the closest friends and family as no one else.

Cecilia joined the Pró-Criar, group of the artist Elizabeth Titton. Also did drawing course with Paulo Bastos Dias, woodcut course with Juliano DeBarros, and fusing course with Elvo Benito Damo and Maria Helena Saparolli. She has works in public collections and with collectors from Paraná, Santa Catarina and France.

As a consolation to her father, the three sisters, Cecília, Marilia and Jussara decided to meet once a week in Jussara`s psychology clinic, and thus Cecília discovered the pleasure of sculpting, as the sisters continued with meetings of Art Therapy even after their father’s death.

In these works, the removal from the whole is the procedure utilized. It gives a free way to the imagination, with the exploration of different materials according to their characteristics, seeking for the form simplification. It`s the extroversion revealing the introversion.


I am passionate for shapes. When I see a piece of wood, I wonder what could come out of there. I clean, treat and start the thinning process. I work doing fillings and implants, almost like a dentist. This is the wood.

About the bronze, it is less laborious, because I only make the model in clay, which in itself is very pleasurable. I do this when I cannot go to the studio. After that the mold is created and then the job of casting is done. I have plenty of models waiting. Sculpture is a wonderful and very hard work, cause it requires an appropriate place, but I love what I do.

The stone is totally different, I buy or gain it. I spend some time “flirting” and then I decide what it is going to be. Depending on the format something just springs out, or I do a sketch in clay to start. But the stone also has “temper”, sometimes it has failures or crystals that modify the work. That’s interesting, because the result is better.
