Red Gate Gallery presents abstract paintings by four Portuguese artists; an exhibition of diverse works ranging from the semi-figurative to the gestural, and from intense colour to delicate hues.
Conceição Rhodes' works exploring crowds and their surroundings truly live without limits; they breathe and flow freely and express themselves in bold and vibrant hues. Rhodes feels and finds figures that appear as a result of a game of colours; a game which spontaneously constructs different backgrounds and atmospheres which then grow to suggest real life scenarios.
'Man extracts from nature the materials needed to make it liveable. Our aim is to recreate and transform that which was given to us, into form, texture and art.' (Conceição Lacerda 2010)
Lacerda's paintings, full of beautiful and intense colour, use abstract horizontal and vertical planes to echo the landscapes and natural vistas that inspire her.
Cecilia Guimaraes' work is art without premeditation, fruit of the moment, and an unconscious organization. Her pale and delicate abstractions are a vision of nature that is subtle and cosmic; her paintings present the instant fleeting of memory or seduction, the day and the night, the earth and the sky, the universe and the transient.
“What I demand in all things is life, the potentiality of existence, and that’s that; we need not then ask whether it be beautiful or ugly, the feeling that whatever’s been created possesses life outweighs these two and should be the sole criterion in matters of art” (From Lenz by Georg Buchner)
It is Helena Paz's belief that when a painting is created it assumes a life of its own – a conviction clearly evident in her paintings which, through their more figurative nature, are brimming with life and movement.
