Borges and the Tigers, 2019
painting / collage, graphite and acrylic on platex 34 x 24 cm
MESCLA II - Verney Art Show
Sometimes, we have good surprises (!) and so I was delighted to be invited to this exhibition, which aims to continue its first edition (in 2021) and the objectives set by the Municipality of Oeiras to bring together different artistic sensibilities into this space.
For this exhibition I chose two paintings:
this one, whose title "Borges e os Tigres" (Borges and the tigers) I took, shamelessly, from a poem by Portuguese poet Eugénio de Andrade, where he evokes - equally shamelessly - the poems "The Tiger" by William Blake and "El otro tigre" by Jorge Luís Borges
Alimentação em Azul #3, 2019
painting / acrylic on mdf / 34 x 27 cm
that belongs to a series of drawings, paintings and objects I made in tribute to the Portuguese artist Luísa Correia Pereira (Lisbon, 1945-2009), once more, snatching the title and some elements of an engraving made by her.
