João Queiroz

Geppetto - Encáusticas sobre madeira

30  NOV 23 - 20 JAN 24

I'm using photography as a way to investigate and try to understand these seas. I attempted to make them more artificial and less natural.

Photographic documentation

Among the one-person exhibitions we can single out: “Drawings”, CAM, Gulbenkian Foundation; “Body Building”, Loja da Atalaia, Lisbon; “Rui Sanches, Retrospective”, CAM, Gulbenkian Foundation and “Museum”, Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Lisbon. Some important group-exhibitions were: the 19th São Paulo Bienal; “PASTFUTURETENSE”, Winnipeg Art Gallery and Vancouver Art Gallery; “Tríptico”, Europália 91. Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst, Ghent; “From Silence to Light”, Watari-Um, Tóquio; “Abstract/Real”, Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, Viena; “Dentro y Fuera” Cáceres and “Serralves 2009 – The Collection”, Museu de Serralves, Porto. During the 1980’s his work was based on the deconstruction of paintings and genres of painting.

João Queiroz began to exhibit painting and drawing in the early 1980s, while studying Philosophy at the Faculty of Letters of the University of Lisbon. Both interests converge in his work, which engages in an informed reflection on the role of the image in the contemporary age.

The experimental methods he has explored to approach old problems of the language of art involve as much the potential of words written into compositions as, from 1998 onwards, the possibility of a sensorial and non-descriptive representation of nature. João Queiroz taught Drawing, Painting and Art Theory at the Ar.Co (1989-2001) in Lisbon, where he actually lives and works
