Ana d’Castro: Enchanted Garden
This should be one of the most interesting shows of the season, a series of abstract paintings that represents the artist’s journey through past, present and future – with colour speaking “the language of the soul” via “a kinetic immersion into a sensorial world of colours, wherein visitors become a part of the artwork itself”.
The results are impressive, both in simple decorative terms and in a more cerebral way. For instance, she defines her practice as “ARTchitecture, representing the symbiosis between Art and Architecture, blurring the boundaries between the two and exploring higher levels of complexity by doing so”. She feels that her obsession with dimensions, proportion, balance and scale draws her into a compulsive alignment – the confinement and rigidity ultimately allows her to be more flexible and free.
And she has always been interested in the relationship between display and its setting: “When planning an exhibition, the architectural site context plays a major role in my work. My aim is to achieve a complete synergy between elements, as if paintings become the environment and the architecture itself. There is an intrinsic study that explores all the basic relations between architecture and the presentation of the artworks.”
To 31 October.
