“The human condition, based upon doubt, anxiety, conflict, the glorification of life and the celebration of death are a refering script to my painting project. It is therefore upon this complex and contradictory background that I try to create and tell stories of decisive moments of life, representing the body/space and the memories of past and, in a subliminal way, future lives. This human figure deployed in an imaginary space of representation, painted from a recipe consisting of a wide range of materials, by a mix that confronts the transparencies introducted by encaustic velatures with the opacity and the volume of successive layers of strong chromaticism materials, apparently prevents the viewer from an in-depth reading, not preventing, but rather suggesting, its projection, the (re)cognition of an inner "turned off”, explained the author, currently a teacher and also one of the responsibles by Passevite studio, in Lisbon.

Open from Wednesday to Saturday, from 5 pm to 8 pm (other schedule by appointment only).
