Ava Galleria presents the exhibition “Human being – an encoded text”, by Cesar Coelho, curated by Edson Cardoso, at Centro Cultural Correios RJ
Plastic artist and shoe designer, which has a piece in the collection of the National Historical Museum, translates into his works a new way of seeing the human being.
A Ava Galleria presents the exhibition “Human being – an encoded text”, plastic artist Cesar Coelho, bringing his vast pictorial experience, with paintings and sculptures that translate a new way of seeing the human being, subjective and timeless, giving freedom of interpretation to the observer.
“Cesar presents paintings… Expanded where the assumption of this research is the contemporary issues of today without eagerness to break the paradigm of techniques… Undoubtedly an artist who respects the “time "… his plastic restlessness connects us to today's speed of information.” (Rafael Vicente, 2017, Art Axis)
In addition, the artist developed, for over thirty-five years, shoes and bags for your own brand, always associating art with fashion, bringing an innovative perspective and new collections inspired by Mondrian, Miró and Matisse. Including, one of the pieces developed by the artist is part of the permanent collection of the clothing sector of the National Historical Museum (MHN/RJ). Some pieces are part of the exhibition, which aims to show the diversity of emotions that the artist sees in human individuality.
According to Cesar Coelho, “nothing is as fascinating as the human figure, this repository of passions, fears and enchantments. Each human face shows/hides a mystery, hence his constant presence in my search and in my production. I see the body and face as writing, a text. When I look around, the animals, rocks, Trees, the city… it's with the same attitude. It is a permanent process of construction and deconstruction. What ultimately matters is the inside view and not the objective representation of reality.”

Fashion was not the first passion to appear in Cesar's life.. First, he fell in love with art. While kids your age asked for cars for Christmas, he got paints, canvas and brushes. In the living room of his apartment in Ingá, in Niterói, with huge windows that open onto the Sugar Loaf and the MAC, paintings don't just cover the walls.
There are several screens resting on the floor, others lined up. On the office shelf, clay molded heads. What you see most are faces that express the most varied expressions. In fact, Cesar can be defined as a thrill seeker. He says he is interested in gestures of joy, anger, pain and pride, in an attempt to unravel the mystery behind each expression. Inspiration comes from both anonymous and famous characters.
