paulo vieira - Brazil
The painter Paulo Vieira presents at the Galeria Movimento, Shopping Atlantico Shopping Center, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, the exhibition "After Today". This is the artist's second solo show in Rio de Janeiro - the last one was held in 2011 - with more than 30 years of career.
Rigorous, obsessive and profound student of painting, Paulo Vieira presents 41 works, among them, 31 oils on canvas and 10 on paper with acrylic, graphite and crayons.
The artist's work escapes from traditional figuration and presents evocative and random images such as the verse by Paulo Leminski that baptizes the exhibition. "When you look at the set, you think it was born that way.
But these works were not done by imagining an exhibition.
I wanted to repaint with oil, which I had not done for a long time, "he says. As he preferred to work with small format screens, the set of images acquired a fragmentary character and, paradoxically, a strong cohesion.
The whole exhibition revolves around the concept of self-portrait. "All my painting is self-portrait," he reiterates, beginning with an impressive work on graphite and large crayons that anchors exposure.
Images that suggest memories and dreams populate the screens carefully articulated around the ideas of isolation, incommunicability and inner life. "They talk inside. Each tells a story, but each spectator completes it with their individual experiences, "adds Paul.
According to the curator Mauro Trindade, the portrait is an expensive subject for painting, a genre that Baudelaire found to be so modest in appearance and in need of immense intelligence.
"Without the grandiloquence of the historical painting or the effects of the landscape, the portrait allowed the construction of a certain identity today undermined by the erring personality of the subject nowadays.
In this context the exhibition After Today can be understood as a great self-portrait, "he concludes.
