Cecilia Brunson Projects and Almeida & Dale Art Gallery are delighted to announce a presentation of works by the acclaimed Brazilian artist Luiz Sacilotto (1924-2003). The exhibition is curated by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro and Denise Mattar.
The works in this exhibition come from the later period in Sacilotto’s career when in 1974, after a decade-long hiatus following the establishment of the military dictatorship in Brazil, he finally returned to his studio. The show unites the artist’s large-scale paintings with smaller gouache studies demonstrating how the artist played with spacial and colour possibilities on paper before committing them to canvas.
A publication with essays from Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro and Pia Gottschaller will be published in due course.
