Interference on the municipal gallery of Chapecó, Brazil.

Inside the galery


Red fabric under courtains ~ XII ~ 2010


As the frame that encloses the surface of a painting, a window can be defined as a border, according to Helio Fervenza as a "device that produces the separation of spaces which would be assigned a different status." By linking these spaces, "the sign that is the edge, does not define anything in a rigorous way, he states:" this is an artifact of presentation, while being "included and excluded from the space provided, allowing us to conclude that a curtain would be both a ceiling and a "passing place" or an instrument of mediation between the interior space, occupied by the statement - PEACE - and outer space.
The work PEACE makes the boundaries of the gallery leaking to the world in perpetuity; overflowing move to other situations - not necessarily art - making art constantly visible to the public: closeing the Curtain comes a new exhibition that gives back to the art space, opening up the street, interfering subtly in urban space.
Vertical strips of red fabric to hatch window, warming the gray curtains, making the statement, which can only be decrypted with the distance: a sign that now emerges from the interior and yells to horizontal gaze through the message of peace - necessarily greater the passerby. According to history, Jesus Christ himself once said: "I leave you my peace, my peace I give unto you." There would be no humanity without this little three-letter word.

Ship of Fools

Mail art is a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 1960s and involves sending visual art (but also music, sound art, poetry, etc.) through the international postal system. Mail Art is also known as Postal Art or Correspondence Art. The term networking is often used to describe Mail Art activities, based on the principles of barter and equal one-to-one collaboration.

After a peak in popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Mail Art phenomenon has gradually migrated to the Internet, whose “social networks” were largely anticipated and predicted by the interactive processes of postal collaborations. Nevertheless, Mail Art is still practiced in the new Millennium by a loose planetary community involving thousands of mailartists from the most varied backgrounds.

At this time I participate in a group exhibition, which is called "Portrait Author," where various artists performed their picture with the technique of woodcut.

Casa Andrade Muricy - MAC, inaugurated in June 26, 1998, is an exhibition space of the Ministry of Culture of Parana, Brazil. Conducts exhibitions of contemporary visual arts, national and international exhibitions and also of historical significance. It is a unique space for exhibitions and has no collection of works of art.

On the same occasion, there will be exhibition called "plot" of the German artist Gerhard Richter.

Some shots of the colective exhibition "Entrelínguas"

"Entrelinguas" is the dynamic process of an event that comes between accents from different cultures. In this context, independent of the native language of each participant will open up opportunities for recognition and relationship between signs, decoding as well, matter and image.
Subscribed to different categories of manifestations to artistic creations, the signs raise the senses and transcend the verbosity.
The physical contact provided by the finding of six Brazilian works (southern) and ten foreign, is a cultural exchange that discusses the language. Works produced with different techniques, designed for national and foreign artists are brought together in the building that houses the School of Languages "Idiomass.

Work in progress

Enjoying the celebrations of Easter Week, I present here a work done on commission, last year. The work was born from a reflection on the theme of the last supper that Christ had with his disciples. What was very difficult to accomplish something that had not yet been done, since this topic is very current in art history. Therefore I chose to use a view plongée. In this picture you can see the process of working with their indecision and corrections that contribute to the final result.
