Art, colors, forms, celebrate the reunion of CCP with the public
Park of Culture House | CCP, idealized by Regina Pinho de Almeida, reopens its doors in accordance with all protocols defined by the competent areas and, as a celebration of the reunion with the public and friends, with three unpublished exhibits in their exhibition spaces. In Gallery - the collective “Meanwhile”With works by André Ricardo, Bruno Dunley and Sérgio Sister. Space for new creatives is available and active in the quarterly action Cabinet where he exposes the first institutional individual of Thomaz Rosa – “Image and action”. Edgar Racy starts the semiannual action Project 280 x 1020, with the work “Beloved homeland?”.
Three artists meet to propose a visual dialogue using one of the oldest and most respected techniques of expression of culture: the painting. They are contemporary names, at different times in its trajectory, but already with its consolidated positions in the Brazilian and international cultural circuit. It is the meeting of Sergio Sister, present in the imagination and collections of several generations of admirers and lovers of the arts since the end of the 1960, with a selection of small format works from the years 1990 and unpublished works from his recent production, with work André Ricardo and Bruno Dunley, mid-first decade of 2000, allowing a harmonious and intense dialogue.
“The idea of bringing together the work of Sister with that of two young painters, Dunley and Ricardo, beyond the particularities of the work of each of them, is to establish a debate on the transition from modern issues to contemporary times and how painting still updates the issues of art today”, explains Claudio Cretti, artistic director of CCP. The professor and philosopher José Bento Ferreira, analyzes: “For the three artists, painting is a refusal to be a thing. Frames are material objects made of relationships, carriers of a certain immateriality. The painting, like every image, it's not a thing, and look. She establishes looks, produces relationships.”
Sergio Sister has been an influence for Brazilian and international artists since the beginning of the 1970. Creates abstract screens, in which it combines color bands of approximate shades, employing short brush strokes and metallic paints, connecting two or more different colored bodies. In a next moment, combines painting and sculpture. What marked his production at the time is the superposition of chromatic layers, resulting in autonomous color fields that coexist harmoniously. Today, his work combines painting and sculpture. It uses supports derived from found structures and systems designed to serve everyday needs.
Use abstract works by Sergio Sister as reference, didn't stop that Bruno Dunley and André Ricardo develop their visual signature based on the figure.
“Bruno Dunley involves some images with thick patches of paint. Figures plunge into space. The apparitions that populate his paintings point to a mythical and archetypal dimension. File images, portraits, dream memories and visions coexist with abstract and monochrome paintings ”, explains José Bento Ferreira. Already about André Ricardo, the philosopher says: “Observes architectural forms, animals, vehicles and everyday design. Purified and recombined in fabrics, the images of things appear full of meaning. Ways made to deceive, to please and seduce are reduced and translated by the artist. Assume a rigid appearance, hieratic. Its contours and colors become resplendent in a way entirely different from that of the common view of things. The idol resurfaces as an icon ”.
Meanwhile presents itself as a celebration of colors and techniques, a tribute to painting and a pictorial statement of the possibility of harmony and dialogue between generations, shapes and messages.
Projects Cabinet and 280 x 1020
Autonomous cultural actions of the CCP, the Projects Cabinet and 280 x 1020 have differentiated goals and contemplate a diversity of languages - painting, sculpture, video, photography, performance, installation - and artists from different generations creating a rich panorama of visual production in the country. In Cabinet, new guest artists that emerge as promises in the contemporary visual scene, have space to present, Maybe, your first institutional individual show. To 280 x 1020, the invited artist is “challenged” to fill the area with small works that tell a story in a pre-defined area.
Thomaz Rosa is the guest of the quarter for the Project Cabinet debuts his first institutional individual Image and action, with a series of 15 paintings in small formats.
280 x 1020 is Edgar Racy with the artwork Beloved homeland? (2018).
