VAO ESPAÇO DE ARTE - RESIDENCY, 2019 SAO PAULO, BRAZIL
Córtex Frontal Residency, 2018 Arraiolos, Portugal
Pop-Up Exhibition of the works produced during the month long residency.
During my stay at Córtex Frontal I would like to develop a body of work that has the landscape of Arraiolos as a starting point, translating my experience into a visual vocabulary.
My goal is to expand an ongoing experimentation with images that merge abstraction with realism. I usually layer a variety of textures that can both interfere and accentuate the others, exploring the diversity of the landscape and challenging my perception of space.
The idea is to research historical and culturally significant places in Arraiolos that will influence the work: architectural shapes, fragments of the vegetation, colors and movement observed in the surroundings. I am interested in creating works that are detached from my current daily influences through the interaction with the local community and other artists in the residency.
