Adriano Ribeiro

"My artwork is conceptually formless, an empty space in which occasionally I take a flamethrower into and start all over again, with love. . It’s my job, my passion, my duty. I am really grateful and honored to the universe for this assignment."

"I intimately think that building a visual subject is above all immediacy, I am a pretty rational and pragmatic person consequently I do not place through my art cultural contradictions or philosophical reflections, I’m into the pure visual zone of my work most of the time. In other words I’m just looking for a trice of emotion in the abstract beauty, something that I can read on the fly, and cry and laugh without having to identify myself entirely, that goes beyond me as a creative, or creator, a conceptual entity that can embrace and accumulate a lot of energy on my small painting surface. There’s a lot of science references and some sci fi allegories in my artworks rather than only abstract intuition or inspiration, I love the way these fields occasionally coincide in the same space, in a sort of cosmic cooperation. I’m just bringing my long time technical skills in over 30 years of experience manipulating materials to create my abstract masks, and I hope the universe will bring everything else, the real thing: the energy, the connection, the supreme intelligence. This Artist Statement will surely be changed or upgraded in the next future, as every little thing in this existence, every molecule and atom are in a constant move, so am I."
