Descrizione
Architect, painter, collector. These are the multiple personalities of the Portuguese artist Nadir Afonso, on show at the Carlo Bilotti Museum in Rome and the Loredan Palace in Venice, with the objective of narrating an intense life lived in art and for art, in an experience that enabled him to develop relations of friendship and professional cooperation with Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Cândido Portinari, Max Jacob, Fernand Legér and Giorgio de Chirico. This catalogue proposes all the works on show, together with essays which are fundamental in order to understand the aesthetic experience of Afonso. The let motiv of the city, with its transfigurations and its spatial and temporal metamorphoses, forms the heart and the spark igniting a quest which begins from geometry, the abstract description of the cityscape, a summary and projection of its visual identity, a perception that is at once consciousness and unconsciousness, emotion, intuition and enquiry. From here he reaches dynamism as the subject and instrument for envisioning and understanding reality. The ambition is that of attaining the eternity of architectural form, not in the shape of monuments, but in that of essence, starting from the point reached by the great masters and moving yet further to explore new directions, new horizons of art and expression. The important thing is the emotion of viewing, the enthusiasm of its effect, the speed of what is perceived. The instant, in form and colour.
