Biography

Teodoro Dias
[Teodoro Stein Carvalho Dias]
1954, Poços de Caldas | MG

The Art of Teodoro Dias deals with simple shapes that could be summarized in two parallel lines. They are the source of his engravings, drawings, paintings and three-dimensional objects.
The artist's challenge - a conscious challenge - is the ability to, from simple elements, providing the audience experiences that reveal the infinite possibilities contained in ordinary and anonymous gestures: draw a line next to each other.
He is not moved by an aristocratic demagogy that sees the artwork itself such a noble activity that should be practiced by all men and women. He admires the diversity of human crafts. And since held several of them with dignity.
His central concern is the creation of objects that are not ostensibly shown as art. But they require a subtle perception of the world and of individuals to put them on the threshold of an experience in which all beings lack an obese identity and content records.
It is precisely this radical questioning of a stratified world where activities, people and objects respond to fixed and self-righteous denominations, that his art-without-art intends to put into action. Discreetly, of course, since the ostentatious feet of clay would give their homage to whisper.
