ATELIER CONTENCIOSO | DOTS AND BLOTS

The pieces chosen here, the work of artists from Atelier Contencioso, bring to light some of the visual and, therefore, conceptual parallels characteristic of the paintings and drawings of their creators. These are small format works of an intimate expressivity.

ANTÓNIO VIANA |PROXIMITIES
...”If there is a conceptual framework behind the practice of António Viana, it resides in how the artistic work develops, as project and process in simultaneous continuity with something else. The hybrid characters that surface in his work, are a fragmented oniric magma where the libido is in plain sight, part of a utopian, imagined, absurd universe where machines and tools transform themselves into beings that react to bewildering situations. The syncope-break occurs with the exaggerated cut of plane, , as well as the chromatic harmony...”
[Excerpt from the text The Indiscrete Tales of António Viana by Cristina Azevedo Tavares - Associate Professor at FBAUL. Research fellow at CFCUL and CIEBA
 

ANTÓNIO GONÇALVES / CARNIS DESIDERIUM

ANTÓNIO GONÇALVES / CARNIS DESIDERIUM

As I continue to explore and develop my practice as a painter, the Flesh, Desire, Religion, and Eros are fundamental aspects for my contemplation and study.
The purpose of this exhibition is to show a little more of the work I am currently developing. How do we paint Desire?
“Desire as the subject of painting. The painting of desire. But is it not desire, also, that makes us paint? Does not all painting, all art, stem from an enigmatic, prepersonal need for «blood» rather than consciousness, from an imperative desire, an obscure «artistic will»?
[excerpt from the book Teologia da Carne (A Theology of the Flesh) by Sousa Dias, on my painting]
