Jorge Queiroz

Jorge Queiroz has exhibited his work widely in United States and Europe, selected solo exhibitions include Fundação Carmona e Costa, Lisbon (2012 -2013), Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto (2007); Horst-Janssen-Museum, Oldenburg (2006) and Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (2004), where he also completed a residency. Queiroz participated in the Biennale de Rennes (2016); 4th Berlin Biennale (2006), 26th São Paulo Biennale (2004) and 50th Venice Biennale (2003).

In his work, action is characterized as a search and discovery of impulses and reasons which lead to basic or original polarity: sense and nonsense, logic and the illogical, the conscious and the unconscious, full, empty, abstract and figurative, narrative and fragment…. Or, everything is and is not, at the same time, because the law is a fundamental metamorphosis: permanent transmutation.

It is not a technical image, or a hierarchy of possible values where details may be inferior to forms, or forms that only react to a subversive space by which they are dominated. Rather, space continues from drawing to drawing, painting to painting, and drawing to painting. There are no neutral intervening components that escape the grid. Each component, each mode, each work has more in common than that which is different. In this way, figurative elements and their relation function as both form and spatial relation, not necessarily in the supposed reference to their utility-function. All of the elements – form, relation, space – are at my disposal as if on a moving stage.

Over longer periods of time enables the construction of a space within which to develop vocabulary, vision and acuity.
