Moçambique, 1972


The work of the artist Pedro Gomes (1972) has been built in the wake of the discipline of Drawing, understood as an expanded field of representation and mapping of reality. Considering that in the last decades of the 20th century, Drawing became autonomous as an artistic discipline and largely lost its sketchy or experimental character, Gomes’ work has proved to be very relevant in these premises. If, on the one hand, the design of architectural structures, buildings or interior spaces implies a free and uninvolved design where the three-dimensional space quickly appears, on the other hand, the sophisticated techniques that the artist investigates makes the presentation of an accumulation of museum spaces sort of experimental. Both positions are contradictory and make the way of seeing and perceiving the artist’s drawings more complex, which are transformed into screens of multiple possibilities and from different points of view.
