Presented by GALERIA PRESENÇA

Pedro Gomes lives and works in Lisbon. He studied at the Chelsea College of Art (MFA), in London, and at Ar.Co., in Lisbon.
At the Drawing Room fair, Pedro Gomes will be presenting Panorama, an installation of drawings developed from the modern idea of the white cube and the panoramicpaintings of the late eighteenth century. Made up of graphite and acrylic drawings on paper, in modules of 140 cm square sheets, Panorama fills the showroom’s white walls, turning the aseptic space of the white cube into aninfinite noise chamber that resembles white noise. This project continues the artist’s research on how the image can be a juxtaposition of undifferentiated realities, causing the eye to get lost on the surface of the drawing.
