Deserto Modelo



October 27, 2016 – January 14, 2017

The exhibit is the outcome of a one-month residency during which the artist has created new oil paintings and light installations that are presented alongside older works to show the path of an artist whose apparently simple pictorial practice hides a remarkable richness of meanings and suggestions.

Arruda paints seascapes on small scale canvases. We don’t know if these seascapes are real or not, if they have been portrayed at dawn or at sunset or if they refer to something beyond our perception. Completed deprived of reference points we are instead rewarded with complete freedom in our personal dialogue with each artwork.
