Nuno Ramos: Anjo e Boneco
December 7, 2013 – March 30, 2014
Museu Oscar Niemeyer
Curitiba, PR, Brazil
The title of the exhibition is a fragment extracted from “Elegias de Duíno” by Rainer Maria Rilke – “Anjo e boneco: haverá espetáculo”. Unlike previous designs, the artist now works with few elements and materials. The compositions are all done with gouache and charcoal pastels. There are geometric shapes combined with gestural lines, and the play between the lines and shapes always seem to be on the limit of imbalance. There is an expectation of the future and the compositions are never static.
