Item Description

Amilcar de Castro body of work has influenced many generations from the fifties to nowadays. The artist has always defended the importance of the creative process and the power of creating art from an introspective point of view, translating the personality of the artist into original artworks, giving it a personal concept.

The solo exhibition “Amilcar de Castro, Icone du néo-concretisme brésilien” (in English, Amilcar de Castro, Icon of Brazilian Neo-Concrete) at Ricardo Fernandes Gallery, in Paris, showcased a selection of iconic works from 1980 to 1996, from paintings to wood or iron sculptures, giving visitors a solid idea of the last ten years of his carrier.

“What determinates if the person is an artist is if he looks inside himself. Every experience is a self-experience in art; it’s the experience of oneself in a personal research. You cannot live others’ experiences. This internal silence looking for the origin of things is the big problem in art. Looking for the source you become unique, and not wanting to do anything different than that. That’s why I think that creating goes together with living. Art and life are the same thing.” Amilcar de Castro.
