THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM

Davis Lisboa, “Marcel Broodthaers #4 (Paintings)", 2016, oil on canvas, 11,8 x 11,8 x 1.57 in (30 x 30 x 4 cm)

What/who inspired the work?
This work has been inspired by the Gerhard Richter, Luc Tuymans or Wilhelm Sasnal's paintings. Al these artists share the same line of work.

What do you hope viewers will feel/think?
I hope the viewers learn about this photograph of Marcel Broodthaers I used to make this work. In this reference, the Belgium artist is wearing a clown nose. Broodthaers used it to design a poster exhibition for his "Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles" (Museum of Modern Art, Department of Eagles).

I hope that viewers feel the delicate nuances of oil brushstrokes on canvas. I hope they realize the first works of "The Paintings Section" were in black and white and I'm now using different shades of blue (Cobalt, Ultramarine and Prussian Blue). The use of this color in these collection produces a conceptual connection between the portrayed character and the Davis Museum corporate blue.

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
I chose the oil medium on canvas because it is the "king" of medium painting.

I chose to do a portrait of Broodthaers as a form of "appropriation". It is a way to catch and memorize him, to try to understand his ideas. And I think I can start making his portrait.
