An exhibition by renowned Brazilian artist Fernanda Gomes. Showing the most recent pieces of her investigation on painting, she will continue working in the gallery space for three weeks prior to the exhibition opening, using it as an extension of her studio.
Fernanda Gomes’ work reveals a renewed focus on painting, questioning not only what defines a painting, but also what constitutes a painting exhibition and how we can experience it. The artist will compose and create dialogues between various autonomous pieces made of canvas, wood and paint. While colour may at first appear to be absent, by the exclusive use of white paint, the work challenges us to observe the subtle spectrum that informs our perception of colour. While recalling the geometry and modulated surfaces in the Brazilian Neo-Concrete movement of the 1960s, her work references the hundred-year-old history of the monochrome and abstraction.
