    photography

    'Pool' is inspired by the paintings that David Hockney dedicated to the swimming pool, in which the different scenes are developed around one.

    In this series, the minimalist compositions predominate, the geometric forms and the luminous colors, where the water and its movement have a special stardom.

    The scenes that are shown are quite daily, giving the photographs a certain costumbrismo. The characters that appear in them are totally unconcerned, and seem to be enjoying a quiet pool day. We see them immersed, swimming and playing in an idyllic environment full of vivid colors in the purest pop art style.

    André Catarino's thematic concerns, exploring subjects such as human-inflected landscapes and late capitalist ruins, and appropriation of other media composition techniques and reproduction systems (especially past photographic and cinematographic techniques) puts André Catarino in a central vein of Western thought and art-related concerns, which connect him to diverse names and oeuvres such as Atget's, Walter Benjamin's and the Bechers's.

    'Landscape,' as of course, is always already a human category, a section and separative bloc acted upon the natural biosphere, one that reveals cultural conditions. The portability, as it were, of landscape creates, paradoxically, a distance from, and a classification of, nature. Catarino's particular choice of represented scenes – trainways, mining structures, abandoned civilian buildings or military installations, monumental ruins, or vestiges of abandoned industrial and capitalist goods – reinforce the coherence of the artist's research. Point in fact, André Catarino's insistence on the theme of ruins and destruction, frequently through fire (which allies itself neatly and pertinently with his choice of materials and chromatic outlook), links him in many other ways to the work of German philosopher Walter Benjamin.

    painting

    For me, painting is the most obvious way to translate an ongoing pace, the world, its people and environment. It's my language at the moment, it's always there.

    My process combines acrylic paint and multi-layered papers, both new and antique. The papers are cut into thin strips and other geometric and organic shapes. The juxtaposition of paper and paint articulates a universe of balance, texture, movement, and vibrancy.

    photography

    The project is a personal one, I did it for myself and from the bottom of my heart and it started out as a game in which I tried to combine those old-school features of analog 35 mm photography with the new digital vibe, the minimal stroke, the line, the pure colour. I used this rule in order to create a powerful contrast between the old and the new, between a realistic view of the reality ( the photography ) and a minimal, iconic one ( the illustration ).

    painting

    In this series I choose as theme corners of rooms that I inhabit in my daily life, each one with subtly highlighted objects, through the suggestion of titles of the works: Corner with fern; Corner with Van Gogh’s biography; and, Corner with bubble plastic. As if the corner became stage and scenery so that the focused items can incorporate a certain personality and become characters. I usually use photographic references that I transform during the transportation to my paintings, either by changing colors, denaturing the light or by proceeding with other treatments. I do this in order to promote tension between photographic image and pictorial construction and at the same time with the intention of highlighting the solitary and mysterious aspect of places and things, seeking to bring to my work a kind of strangeness existing in the visible world.

    Fault Line is a project I am doing in the small coastal town of Brooklin, Maine. The protagonist is my younger cousin Adam, who lives there. I also photograph my brother, father, and other cousins. I chose the title because a fault line alludes to where the earth splits in an earthquake (a metaphor for a divided family with a complicated history) and also alludes to fault, or blame (I wonder, how does a family support each other, even when things aren't perfect?) My goal is to show the weight we all carry and how we are both connected and isolated from each other.

    painting

    I'd like to think that my work denounces craft, finish, precision, virtuosity and even ambition. I take a rather more imaginative and playful approach to the medium of oil painting, that is considered to be old fashioned. My constant questioning of how much work really is needed to make an artwork, is something I thrive on. My aim is to observe and question things with intensity but to leave them unresolved, without conclusion, to avoid being predictable and going down well known paths. This materialises in the constant revisions within the picture, re-painting the layers and layers of the previous compositions which finally gives my paintings a subtle vibrating energy.

    collage

    I am a french collagist. I began the collage seven years ago. I work especially on series by looking constantly for different directions.

    Three are extracted from a series of collages titled 'Green Lady' and the other four are extracted from a long series of more than 300 abstract, instinctive, spontaneous, impulsive collages.

    I’m sitting on a hill with my Ecuadorian friends. We are looking down at the city of Quito. The sun is shining bright. They say that their ancestors worshiped the sun. They called it Inti. It's the same sun, but everything is new for me.

    This was my first trip to Ecuador. The first step into South America.

    I wandered around.

    I talked to people. I made friends. I saw the flow of everyday life.

    I thought, how these people can live calmly, under an active volcano.

    The Andes and the Pacific Ocean - amazed me.

    Landscapes, cultures, traditions, people...

    I was only more curious when I left.
