Playing Cards


With the visual artist and photographer Marília Vasconcellos

 

We have in this working in process project three main objectives. The first one is to bring to the surface a long and deep research around playing cards. Not only as an hobby, but also in matter of use to hide information and to read the unknown. The second objective is to understand our environment and personal relations as playing cards, with their specific meaning and function, developing our conscience of the complex reality. The third objective is to create this aesthetic in a dialogue between the photograph and the painting, blending them during the layers of creation. When, in the final result, we will have multiple layers of printings, digital manipulations and manual interferences; original and digital pieces from different moments of the process.
