This show focuses his aesthetic discourse in the image as a constitutive resistance desire. Attend three women of different generations militating in the art system through painting: Patricia Chaves valley is a sober and economical palette to talk time, space and memory. His painting does not allow distractions. Background and figure are given simple valuation, franca, planar. There is a conspicuous silence on this return of their increases in us the interest in these figures redeemed by the innocence of childhood. Rita Manhães paint discloses a crossing of abstraction and figure. It is precisely this contrast field forces that gives the development of their own corporeality of its buildings. Rita bet on the color to deconstruct his pictorial vocabulary, fabric on accumulations, displacements and migrations. The bodies of Stella Margarita are deprived of any recognition of space or time in which they can be inserted. In this kind of involuntary cloister, these beings seem to target dispossessed, as castaways, lost and translated into pictorial gestures. Thus, the notion of the universe that is given by these three productions is submitted and powerfully mediated by an open window where art and life are mutually contaminated.
