Pedro Casqueiro

Granuja

12 NOVEMBER - 23  DECEMBER 2021

Her work is featured in the following collections: Museu do Chiado, Serralves Foundation, Museu de Arte Contemporânea do Funchal, EDP Foundation, Coleção António Cachola and also the Coleção Banco Privado. She received the Prémio União Latina prize in 2001.From the principles of assemblage, intervened appropriation and abstract construction, the artist creates objects that appeal to the careful reading of their own processes, surprise and intrinsic nature. Isolated or conceived for dialogues in the space, they have the presence and the tactile appeal of sculpture, but also the resourcefulness of drawing and the intriguing challenge of their latent symbolic reference.

His work was represented in several collective exhibitions in institutional spaces in Portugal and abroad, including: Museu de Serralves, Porto (2000 and 1992); Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon (1992); Museu da Eletricidade - Fundação EDP, Lisbon; Museu Coleção Berardo, Lisbon; Centro de Arte Manuel de Brito – CAMB (2010), Lisbon; Galeria de Pintura do Rei D. Luís, Palácio da Ajuda (2000), Libon; at Museu de Arte Moderna from Rio de Janeiro (1994), Museo Extremeño y Iberoamericano de Arte Contemporáneo, Badajoz (1999), Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst, Gent, Belgium (1991), Akademie der Künste, Berlin (1998), and at the Margaret Lipworth Gallery (alongside with John Walker e Gerald Lang), Boca Raton, Florida (1993).

Patrícia Garrido graduated in painting at the Escola Superior de Belas-Artes in Lisbon (ESBAL). She has participated in numerous group exhibitions which include: Mais Tempo, Menos História, Serralves Foundation, Porto (1996); O Império Contra-Ataca, Galeria ZDB, Lisbon (1998); Squatters, Galeria do CRUARB, Porto (2001). Solo exhibitions include: T1, Serralves Foundation, Porto (1998); Móveis ao Cubo, Desenhos ao Acaso, TREM Galeria Municipal de Arte, Faro (2009); Peças Mais ou Menos Recentes, EDP Foundation, Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis and Galeria Fernando Santos, Porto (2013).

Pedro Casqueiro was born in Lisbon in 1959, where he currently lives and works.

Having completed the Painting course at the Superior School of Fine Art of Lisbon in 1984, exhibited regularly since 1981. Working on various pictorial supports, the work of Pedro Casqueiro is often characterized as averse to the classification logics that map a authoring productio, suppressing deviations from the norm that do not find their place in linear and homogenizing ordering. Among the forms and styles he employs are: different incursions into abstraction; architectural evocation by the representation of geometric volumetry; figuration by pictograms, references to comics and pop imagery; use of graphics, lettering and painted word.

Exhibition Views

There is always one of two paths:

the reactive or the one to explore ideas that were already hinted at in the previous work. There is almost always a reactive tendency with me to not do what I was doing before.
