About The Artwork

This work is an abstract-concrete representation of the city of Brasília, the place I inhabit, from an unusual angle, that is, the city seen from below; unrealistic insinuations refer to the geometry of the city and to an icon of its architecture, the dome of the National Congress. As I said, it is not a realistic representation since abstraction dominates the composition, but it is possible to observe a dialogue with real elements that exist in Brasília. The use of blood color with pastel chalk is exemplary, as Brasília is known, among other things, for the color of its clay, an intense blood red. There is even a passage in a text by Alberto Moravia, Brasília Baroque, where the author, when flying over the city, compares the large patches of red earth with steaks laid out over the cerrado. Technically, the work starts with a drawing done in pastel chalk and charcoal; then some areas were covered with solid colors. It is interesting to observe how pastel on canvas offers rich seductive possibilities for work.
