Cocus - amamede´s painting

Cocus - amamede´s painting


Mixed media on canvas



In this canvas, characterised by forms resembling nucleated ovoid microorganisms intersected by colourful rectangular elements, the artist seeks to convey a complex dynamic equilibrium using colour schemes marked by great tension, dominated by strong colours. He uses an extensive colour palette in which unexpected rhythms are established, intersecting wide horizons of colour designed in proportion to a complex spatiality in which an almost biological reality is transfigured into pictorial fiction. The chromatic combinations of hot/cold fill the canvas with rhythm, tension and an almost childish joy.

The artist's paintings are available at the Albuquerque e Lima Art Gallery, in the catalogue and on LCD for viewing at the company’s registered offices by those interested in painting.


Nas telas da série cocus, em que preponderam formas similares a micro-organismos ovalares nucleados interceptadas por elementos retangulares coloridos, o autor pretende transmitir um equilibrio dinâmico complexo em cromatismos de grande tensão onde preponderam as cores fortes. Usa uma paleta cromática ampla na qual se que estabelecem ritmos inesperados que interceptam largos horizontes cromáticos dimensionados na construção de espacialidade complexa onde uma realidade, quase biológica, se transfigura em ficção pictórica. As combinações cromáticas de quente/frio inundam a tela de ritmo, tensão e uma alegria quase infantil.

Esta tela pode ser adquirida na Galeria da Albuquerque e Lima.
