The features defining the constant artistic production Luiz Bhittencourt, They are not divided by chronology, it is unequivocal, with a trace inimitable, drawing fluid, a unique palette, true to its origins while daring, a continuous inspiration in varying themes, always perfecting techniques to your gift, and a subtle boundary between the academic and the naif. Luiz developed, from the start, its own technique on the traditional, that they are unique attributes signing his work.
"Art is nothing more sublime than make what is perceived. Therefore, there is nothing more fundamental in the art to deal with perception. What would be the only visual arts make the guy pass to perceive colors and shapes as beauty and feeling? In the essence of music, is making vibrations in the air feeling. In Windows and Perception series, the artist Luiz Bhittencourt deals precisely with these concepts. The viewer is taken to look for a mirror: "What he sees, It causes him to question how I am seen ". It is an almost Cartesian metalanguage, the notice, I am soon realized. Remete a Munch, with a chromatic intensiveness and expressionist dynamism of great sophistication. It is an intimate book for those notes. It is a Self Exposure exercise, in a society that today paradoxically exposes blatantly through small windows and plastic chips and at the same time isolates earnest on an electronic screen. It is an extremely provocative work to a world that has gotten used to show, but if desacostumou to be seen. Therefore, It is to repeat the statement: the framed windows in the work of Luiz Bhittencourt are like frames of a mirror: They provoke reflection and draw reflection. "
On the current series: Windows and Perception by Douglas Marthim in July / 2019.
