In the light
(MATHEW, 2013, p.50)
The cheerful color that emerges on the light paper, it's like boiling nature, breaking out on the first day of spring. Cheerful, field flowers dot the horizon. Blissful by the colors that disperse, butterflies come out of their cocoons even more colorful than the flowers. And the picture is complete. The color that spreads on the artist's blank paper is like the scene that appears when looking through nature and its joy at the simple dawn.
One of the most used materials in the world, paper is one of the protagonists in Art, by the hands of the craftsman. The delight of those who produce a work begins with the feeling of the texture of the leaf presented, still for the tact and the pleasure of discovering the best way to work with your Art. The rapture by the leaf is completed by sliding the brush and perceiving the ink penetrating the grooves or the pencil decomposing its tip in the roughness of the paper when building the images that the mind has built. The artist is the one who enters his scene and participates in it, feeling the heat, the cold ones, the joys and fears.
From the artist's delight, works like those on display at the Culture Line of the Metro, of the Dialogues on Paper group. Once again, the roles of Moinho Brasil, passed through the hands of 37 artists, who had the opportunity to feel the textures, weights and the best way to work with your techniques. Then came works that take the viewer's gaze to enchantment, to questioning and, above all to be part of scenes that only utopias are capable of. Art has this power.
Moinho Brasil papers are made from recycled recovered paper shavings, or with vegetable fibers and agricultural waste, cooked and processed, with vegetable seeds and there is a special line for Art. To the 37 artists from various parts of Brazil, participating in the show, the papers were made according to your requests, your techniques and your inspirations.
The Dialogues on Paper group is also committed to sustainability and the environment. Art must and can make this happen in a poetic way leading to questions for the public at Art exhibitions. Among the techniques are Watercolor, the collage, the drawing, Photography, Engraving, Painting and Mixed Technique. The editing of the work for the virtual version was done by photographer Ricardo Tokugawa and the curator of the exhibition is also the artist Rita Caruzzo.
The works can be seen in the link of the Culture Line of the Metro:
Like Art, it is good and possible for a mind absorbed in thoughts to occur a sudden reverie. In the cramped space of a sleeping mind, let yourself go for pilgrimages and meet the child in your soul.
The first night I fell asleep, because on the sand miles and miles from any inhabited land. I was more isolated than the castaway on a board, lost in the middle of the sea. So imagine my surprise, When, at daybreak, a strange little voice woke me up. It said:
– Please, draw me a sheep!
