    The Blue of the Colour (painting)
    "Blue Landscape", by Manuela Aço (represented at the Art Gallery / Espaço AmArte), oil painting From the blue of the colour sprouts the ample landscape smile where the houses whiteness and the trees irony claim the contemplation's joy. /// Do azul da cor brota o sorriso da paisagem ampla onde a brancura das casas e a ironia das árvores reclamam a alegria da contemplação. by Armando Taborda…

    Blue Composition II (painting)
      A bílio Marcos is the painter of big urban structures, industrial, metaphysical and poetics, the last ones exclusively abstracts, without nothing that justifies them nor to be compared with others to become comprehensible. Simply they are beautiful cries into the life's mystery!        "Blue Composition II", by Abílio Marcos (represented at the Art Gallery / Espaço AmArte), acrylic paint on canvas Abilio Marcos é o pintor das grandes estruturas urbanas, industriais, metafís…

    Motherhood (painting)
      Isaura Oliveira uses hot colours together with half-tones to energize her works frequently expressed by a modern naturalism, appealing, seductive, a few times with traces of abstract paint.     "Motherhood", by Isaura Oliveira (represented at Art Gallery / Espaço AmArte), oil on canvas Isaura Oliveira usa cores fortes conjugadas com meios tons para dinamizar os seus trabalhos frequentemente expressos num naturalismo moderno, envolvente, sedutor, por vezes com laivos abstractos.…

  • Teresa Barbieri, painter (d. 2000) - pintora (f. 2000)

    - January 21, 2008
    Moorish Town (painting)
         The opera singer and painter Teresa Barbieri was alive not for a long time (d. 2000), however her posthumous work is long-lasting and surprising. She uses light tones and much sepia that denote a strong feminine sensitivity spilled on frequent landscapes and urban clusters (her dominant themes), arranged on the canvas with the rigour, the imagination, and the simplicity of opera' scenarios. Painter of impressionist roots she allows that an unfinished luminosity come up from her pa…

    The Mind Birth (painting)
    Pedro Charters d'Azevedo was born in Lisbon, in 1946. He is an Artist with major A despite his late career (he started drawing and painting regularly when he was around half a century of life), but taken seriously all along intense working journeys (he used to say that " he leaves the inspiration out of his studio's door"). So to speak we are in the presence of a professional artist exigent with himself, who investigates and experiments techniques, cultivates, develops and re…

  • José Neto (painter & sculptor) - (pintor e escultor) - Part I

    City Planet (sculpture & painting)
    Life is made of living...Dream is made of dreaming. The painting and sculpture of José Neto is made of life and dream. Frequent endogenous dreams from his metaphysical mind, expressed by colours, forms and techniques that life has generously taught him. Neither all his mysteries will be unveiled, nor his original style easily referenced but, for sure, the painting and sculpture of José Neto fascinates us and challenges our capacity to dream together with him. A vida faz-s…

  • Eva Penalva (painter) - (pintora)

    The Colour of Silence (painting)
    Eva Penalva, born in Lisboa, artist not in exclusivity. Normally, an artist born in Portugal to survive under dignified conditions either belongs to a rich family or exercises any remunerated profession. In this case the artist worked at the Portuguese Broadcasting. I refer the professional activity due to a strong influence it impressed on her artistic expression.  The music, the nature essentially liquid of life, the dream while rhythm of ideas as dancing bodies, the colours of soft ton…

  • Antonieta Roque Gameiro (sculptor) - (escultora)

    - January  2, 2018
    Lying Beneath the Sun (sculpture)
    Antonieta Roque Gameiro, specialized sculptor of the woman body knows the feminine sensibility through her mouldering hands and settles their individual and social attitudes before the existence through the terra-cotta burning up or the everlasting hardness of bronze. Concretely we are seriously settled down on the women's kingdom, very often girls, alone, plunged into the intimacy of their nature and beauty, smiling, meditating or waiting for a sudden and surprising love. The poses,…

    Perverse Collages / Paper Sculptures (painting series)
    Fernando Grade , Portuguese citizen, writer and poet, plastic artist, critic of art. He uses two heteronyms to divulge his literary work: Abel Sabaoth (born in Porto, 1936, teacher of Latin) and Aal Aarão (born in Lisboa, 1950, economist). Together with other poets of his generation he established the "Portuguese Disintegration Movement" which manifesto was published in 1965. Probably he is its most productive and legitimate representative. He still founded and co-ordinates the oldest poetry n…

    "Escape's Point", Painting Exhibition by Manuela Horta, 2006, catalogue (1)
    At her own private space, the ARThaus-Atelier , we are given by Manuela Horta with intermittent but diversified creative paintings, mixed techniques and installations, the last two focused on the sculptor she claims to be the first condition of her alter ego. We win the possibility to identify one personalized artist from modern and minimalist expression where elements of geometric context, very often abstract, symbolize her souls' status, emblematic situations and others from more or less ir…

  • Carlos Alexandre (painter) - (pintor)

    New York, Manhattan (painting)
    The very urban creator' spirit of Carlos Alexandre roams through Lisbon, Paris, Hamburg, Chicago, New York and other great cities. Soon after he internalizes the collected images in his photographic unconscious and transforms them into recent memories. Or old, I say, once the vibration of colours and movement is untimely, sometimes more definite and understandable than others but always the same acute and poetic look catching the intense instant which escapes through the circu…

    Lisboa, Av. da Liberdade (painting)
    "Lisboa, Av. da Liberdade", by Carlos Alexandre (represented at the Art Gallery / Espaço AmArte), oil on canvas The drawing comes up easily. Very urban! And also from waters, fogs, travels, musics, dreams, events passing by the city. What is fascinating in the Carlos Alexandre painting is the movement, the indefinite shape's outline looking for its own perspective and place in the suddenly captured image. It is not easy to paint like that, underneath a sky of blue rectangles, running over b…
