About Ares Molins i Masat
After studying at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona (2011), she expanded her training as a photographer by attending various courses and workshops with photographers such as Juan Manuel Castro Prieto, Israel Ariño, Juanan Requena, David Jiménez, Llorenç Raich, Oscar Molina , Pau Maynés or Jordi Guillumet and in photography schools such as El Observatorio.
Since 2014, she has been working as a teacher with freelance photography projects and personal art projects. Since 2012, she has also been collaborating with the photography studio David Ruano.
In 2010, together with Alba Dalmau (friend and writer), formed the artistic group Sincopat, which was born from the concerns of experimenting with different expressive languages (photography, literature, design, music, etc.). That same year, they published the book On gnomes hi havia un far, which consists of a collection of short stories for adults illustrated with photographs. In 2015, Sincopat published its second project Estrena, a long accordion that has as its starting point a story of love disappointments and silent cinema. In both projects, the very design and structure of the books are key elements in the storytelling.
Since 2009, her work have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions. Her photographs have been seen at Kowasa Gallery (Individual Expo – Barcelona, 2011), in Vallgrassa – Experimental Center for the Arts (Individual Expo – Garraf Natural Park, 2015), at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona (Expo. collective – Barcelona, 2015), at the Cosmo Caixa (Collective Exhibition – Barcelona, 2010) or at the CCCB – Center for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (Collective Exhibition – Barcelona, 2009).
