Galeria Karla Osorio presents the solo exhibition ‘POÉTICAS DA IMPERMANÊNCIA’ by artist Bené Fonteles, which will open on Saturday, August 13, between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm, with the presence of the artist.
The exhibition brings together 25 works, almost all of them unpublished, the result of the artist’s recent research and production since he lived in the interior of Minas Gerais, where he has lived for almost 3 years, near Poços de Caldas. Nature has always been present as an essential element of its production for over 50 years. This element is further reinforced here with works built as homages to the trees themselves. In all of them, matter and time are present in a symbiosis that is essential, in the dense and splendid work of the artist.

About the exhibition – Testimony by Bené Fonteles
“Poéticas da Impermanência” is a collection of works in which time and matter dialogue with remnants of nature such as wood from a tree felled by lightning near my house and to which I associate bones, shells and marine corals, the indigenous object for tip blowpipes, gourds, wires, nails from train tracks and old colonial doors, iron pipes, used sandpaper and other materials, all arranged on paper made of vegetable fibers.
There is good humor in the series “Impermanência” with the plastic multiples of the works “Bichos” by Lygia Clark that are pressed on a background and glass on pure cotton threads that will make an analogy with her inter-relational work “Baba Antropofágica”. There is in the works the immense pleasure of making almost visual poems with objects in which the passage of time by rust, wear and other effects instigate me and provoke the search for harmony and beauty to celebrate my creative joys»
