Galeria Estação will participate in the first edition of ArtRio on-line with two of its artists to establish a dialogue between the two and three-dimensional.
Dan Coopey, an Englishman in love with Brazil, from time to time resides in São Paulo, does a thorough research of Brazilian natural materials.
According to Raphael Fonseca, the organic and closed forms of basketry previously produced by Dan Coopey give way to a more indefinite character. "Thinking about the relationship between time and doing, it is as if the artist invited the audience to complete the plots that still hang like threads from these objects." They are braided in materials as different as sisal, paper, banana fiber and plastic cords with sizes, colors and curves that move according to the limits of the material.
Moisés Patricio, a multi-lingual artist from São Paulo, does all his research focusing on the Afro universe. In his first solo show curated by Ricardo Sardenberg, Moisés presents the series “Retratos de Familia” (Family Portraits) mapping his expanded family, his adopted family, composed of members of the Yurubá people, a cultural heritage in Brazil today. There are drawings and paintings in acrylic, as well as a series of sculptures made of cement and clay objects used in African cults.
