REINVENTION – THE EXHIBITION

To reinvent is to change something so much that it appears to take on an entirely new form. It appears to become something new. Something otherwise, is created or designed. It changes and is enabled to develop, grow or materialize. The artists in this exhibition embrace the powerful process of change, as suggested by reinvention.

Dulce Schunck, for instance, reinvented the landscape art of Planalto Central, the region where Brasilia resides. Utilizing marble and natural pigments, meticulously layered on canvas, Schunck challenges our perception. Her painting-sculptures are a reverberation of shimmery color, form and texture, presenting depictions of nature anew. The artist’s work is the result of a unique style and levitates between abstraction and figuration.

The photographer Fernando Espinosa Chauvin presents the testimony to his revelatory and attentive dialogue with the Galapagos Islands. Through the eyes of new technologies of our twenty first century world Chauvin reinvented his artistic practice to provide indescribable images - due to is poignancy and the majesty of nature depicted - of the rash and sublime landscape of the place.

Reinvention is also a title of a poem written by Brazilian writer and neosymbolist poet Cecília Meireles (1901-1964). Through her poetry, Meireles stated: ‘Life is only possible reinvented’. The poet conveys the harmony that exists between all the things and the artist. The process of reinvention becomes a means by which artists are the empowered through their creativity and intelligence, to create important and significant works of art.
