Luís Brilhante

Portugal, 1968


The body of work here presented by Luís Brilhante is displayed in a discontinuous way — the drawings and paintings subsist through their visual and individual narrative. The theme, if this word can be used, is displayed in different shapes, such as rectangles and squares and embraces a huge chromatic range, through the motion/calligraphies and also by a continuous series of accidents that sometimes are shown, sometimes are covered by so many other colors and events.
