'nu (SOLD)' by Alvaro Raposo
My work conveys what I want to do and what pleases me at a particular time. Simultaneous pieces of work are common, with different support features, a variable pictorial construction and distinct approaches. During the creation process I am not limited to maintaining the same pictorial representation or to the same shape or period.
The depiction of the human figure in a contemporary way is present
in all my work and it has almost become an obsession. These human figures
cannot sometimes be distinguished in gender. They are mostly depicted in a
solitary way and represented without any surrounding material element.
I create essentially to please myself. By the time my work is ready to face the observer, I consider myself a mere vehicle which creates an opportunity for the art to fulfill its purpose: to be confronted!
