Galeria Nara Roesler is pleased to announce “Fragmentos do Real (Atalhos),” a traveling exhibition of paintings by Fabio Miguez. The exhibition at Galeria Nara Roesler | São Paulo follows its presentation at Figuredo Ferraz Institute, Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, from March to May 2018. During the opening of the exhibition on June 23th, the gallery will also launch Miguez’s monograph “Atalhos” [Fragmentos] by Rodrigo Moura, who also authored a text for the exhibition.
“Fragmentos do Real” presents Miguez’s Fragmentos, an ongoing series which the artist has been developing since 2011. The presented pieces isolate elements present in Miguez’s practice, which are at once unique and repeated in sub-series that present formal and chromatic variations.
Selected pieces dialogue with art history through the presentation of fragments of paintings by artists, including Piero della Francesca, Alfredo Volpi and Henri Matisse. The series also engages with architectural forms, such as houses, walls, pavements of stones and bricks. The display of the exhibition seeks a linear arrangement, fostering the encounter between works that employ varied colors, textures, forms, and movements, fomenting a relationship between figuration and abstraction. According to Rodrigo Moura, Fabio Miguez’s works "are less like idealized pictorial spaces than fragments of the real."
