Selected Artist for the Friedrich Becker Prize 2020.

Patricia Domingues. At the age of 15 she started her studies in the jewellery field and during her training as a goldsmith, Patricia slowly realised the contrast between the heritage of the old craft and the new materials, or the combination of contemporary techniques and ancient materials creates a tension in the work and leads her to find different images and new meanings.
In 2007 she travelled to Spain to study artistic jewellery at the Massana School in Barcelona. There she spent two years studying and a further one year as an exchange student at the Estonian Academy of Arts in Tallinn.

In 2010 Patricia moved to a small village in Germany to attend a Master of Arts at the Gemstone and Jewellery Design Department, University of Trier in Idar-Oberstein. There, she got in contact for the first time with the stonecutting craftsmanship and, simultaneously started investigating two different classes of materials: natural stone and all kinds of artificial materials.

Since 2009 she has participated in collective and solo exhibitions throughout Europe and abroad. Her work has been recognised by internationally jewellery awards: New Traditional Jewellery in Amsterdam (2012), Talente Award in Munich (2014), Mari Funaki Award for emerging artist in Australia (2014) and the Young Talent Prize of the European World Crafts Council in Belgium (2015). Currently Patricia is a PhD student in Arts at the University of Hasselt & PXL-MAD in Belgium.
