RESEARCH PROJECT and WORK iN PROGRESS:
_____________PLASTiC vs NATURE: collage, botanic, composition
On PLASTiC vs NATURE, Pedro Pinheiro try to redefine the borders of drawing and painting by avoiding ink and replasing it by plastic, leaves, organic matters, sand, dirt and several decompositions. The color pallet become a selection of dry or fresh plants with diferent shapes and forms, that after are articulated as gestures, caligraphy and iconic codes.
A botanic colection memorise time and travelings. The metamorphoses side-by-side with the quest for imortality has been captured on some plastic canvas. Industrial materials and new media aesthetics suports, challenge mother nature organic elements to a race for surviving conservation.
The visions of our past-present-future DNAs, that link us to the mother earth beutyfull living patterns, start to collapse on ecologic movements and contemporay city cultures at equal forces at both diferent side of the states of consciousness.
Errors, numerology, rhythms, bugs, visions, explosions, plants and molds are distributed sometimes on precisely order and othertimes as most randomly form as possible. Progress and process is slow. Noises question the present, silence answer to the past, while the future chase is changing permantly.
Compositions can be figurative or abstract and shine like water reflecting the sun light. The senses are being touch in multiple ways and even the smell is included and presented at his time based installations.
Several pseudo cientific research methods can fit on those organic compositions, decompositions or manisfestations. Evolution theory, Material society, Botanic researsh, Psycological interpretation, linguistic code poetry, art therapy, fisical and emontion reactions of individual or collectives.
_____________NATURE vs PLASTiC _____________ (Pedro Piheiro 2004) _____________
A book full of stories,
Numerology and rhythmic natures
Beings, bugs and insects
Visions and explosions
Eternal plants and some mold
… … March of 2002 … … …
A stamped book
dating from 1966
has been reused
as a “sketchbook”
with the purpose of studying
the natural changes in plants.
More images, more dreams and more thoughts are trance-written
A new plastic holder was found
A new support was design
A new canvas was build
Compound of several plant states
begins to be used and developed
Vegetable states in constant motion?!
Quests, questions and answers
While some vegetables are guided to extinction,
disappearance or just to leave this dimension
with a soft trace reminder of its existence
passage through the earth
can be eternal, physically and spiritually
Other organisms will be used in the pursuit of the perservation of its color
maintaining original physical forms
reconstructions continue to be trance-written
intersecting with molecular images of visions
Personal issues and also global stuff
Time and traveling was portrayed
with paradox and irony
metamorphosis would be a joy
More equal less or one day will be a mess!?!
With disleKsia and lots of fantasy
everything looks beautiful
sometimes it´s possible that appears Catholic
But the facts are Chaosolick!?
