Grace Morais. Metamorphoses of Humanity


Commissioner – Jorge da Costa

Under the sign of metamorphosis, Graça Morais takes up in an entirely new series of drawings and paintings on paper a very particular look at humanity. From the images committed to contemporary society, there is a very diverse set of faces and figures that are as intriguing as they are grotesque, as serene as they are restless, as dense as they are ethereal, from which the artist creates a complex web of human emotions and actions.
As visual fictions, his drawings are, in some way, the materialization of a disconcerting, transgressive universe, separated from any rational and logical organization of meanings. The focus of this new series of drawings and paintings is once again on the human figure and its condition.
