seguindo uma linha
Seguindo uma Linha, [following a line] is ongoing project, started in 2012 that explores the transition between conscious and unconscious.
In the last 17 years I lived in Brazil, where spiritual research is very intense and important, everyday life is impregnated, this has changed my way of seeing and photographing.
The disorientation and uncertainty are the sensations of our time and the same ones that the photographs intend to trigger in the observer, the images take on a new perspective in a continuous overturning between looking inside and looking out, in a play of inverted landscapes, guided by perspective point changes, joined by a common denominator: the line and the totem.
The research proposal is engaging, focusing on reflection, moving more than the simple observation of works, questioning normal perception, creating issues, against contemporary photography abuse, trying to exploit the capabilities of traditional technique and digital, creating surreal landscapes in dialogue with 3 D elements in iron, the photos are printed on matte paper and the elements are painted with glossy paint.
I'm interested in how perception changes, as this could cause internal conflicts and possibly affect our way of thinking, to raise a discussion of why existence, to open the mind to another horizons and to create an inner journey.
Sometimes the added element is harmonious with landscape, creating balance sometimes it creates ruptures, divisions.
The elements represent an aperture, a transition, as a psychological process and spatial condition, a window on a parallel universe, also the choice of colours is important, to lead the observer on a spiritual, psychology, introspective journey.
In addition to fine-art photo paper, new media (lines, totems, digital drawings, iron installations and sculptures) are added.
