25/06/2012 | Samico | Taste

The exhibition shall be on show until 31 August. Friday, 22 June 2012, 6 p.m., By: Cesar Giobbi (editor). The Pernambucan artist Samico shall be coming to São Paulo to open an exhibition with the same name, this Tuesday (26th), at 7 p.m. at the Estação Art Gallery. The exhibition shows 16 of his rare wood cuttings, carved between 1992 and 2011, and two painted frames so that the public can appreciate his careful work process. Creator of a unique work style, Gilvan Samico, in wood carving, implements the multiplication of human and animal kingdoms, in oniric compositions which, subdivided into series of wood cuttings, have established his image as one of the great masters of Brazilian art. . With his works produced at his studio home in Olinda, in Greater Recife, the member of the Armorial Movement, idealised by Ariano Suassuna, also stands out among all engravers, being one of the few artists who draws, engraves and manually prints his work. . In the opinion of Weydson Barros Leal, who writes the text for the exhibition catalogue, the pictures created by Samico and carefully engraved,… “are records of a private world that is intimate and universal at the same time, and for this reason also human”. At the opening of the exhibition, WMF Martins Fontes shall be selling the book “Samico”, published by Editora Bem-Te-Vi (96 pages, R$ 190). General Information: Samico, Estação Art Gallery, Rua Ferreira de Araújo, 625, Pinheiros, telephone 0xx11 3813-7253, from 26 June to 31 August.
