Veredas

In the “Veredas” [Paths] series the time is cyclical [not linear or industrial], where everything seems to be extinguished to be reborn after.
The materials used to do the paintings were gathered in the paths at the sierras while walking through them. They are the remains of a “performance” that Ivo Andrade done and he stills do, which isn’t possible to be observed by our cultural sphere.
Here the time more than a concept, is a statement.

Various organic materials like sheep manure, grains of sand, bones, wool, coal and ashes were collected over a period of more than a decade resulting from the walks through the paths formed by the flocks and wild animals in the sierras where the artist have born, and were used to create landscapes inspired on the places where them were gathered.
The observer not only sees the picture but also smells it. The smell [from the sheep manure] has here an important role being determinant the way it activates distant memories carrying our mind to a characteristic place.
