Né Barros

Né Barros , 1964 -Almada, Portugal

Artist's Statement ::
My art is about what is inside and vulnerable in me, searching for the ancient and oriental calligraphies. My interests are reflected in the act of painting. Movement and speed are important. Synthesis of automatism and improvising, tools to create something new, based in medium of light conception, is my aim.

My form is to see and to feel the art results of an interior space, that allows that all the colours, shapes, expressions and languages cohabit in balance.

The abstraction is the purest and spiritual art form, because it's about essence rather than appearance, and the priority of the abstract over other art styles is that it allows for more than just one interpretation, and the viewer is free to dream about it, without edges of the world we live and see. I'm an abstract painter working in acrylic and mixed media. After I am finished with a my work, I disappear and the paintings don't need my presence to explain it's composition and they talk alone with the viewer.
