O Ricardo é aquele designer que faz jus à frase: “a diferença está nos detalhes”. Seu portfólio não poderia ser mais impecável, vale a visita! Para quem mora em Belo Horizonte, Ricardo apresenta seu trabalho no Senai (auditório CETEL, no Horto) no dia 05 de novembro às 19h.
“Becoming a part of virtual reality, a computer data, we merge within the boundless informational field that is internet. The situation within the visual stream we deal with every day — from one point it is related to the layering of information within our mind, from the other, it has a certain connection with print” [via]
I make abstract, sculptural collages using found and collected cardboard and book covers. I am interested in how these materials, in their simplicity, variety and wide abundance, can be cut and formed into quiet surfaces teeming with both geographical and emotional underpinnings. Referencing architecture, landscape and the topographical intersection of urban & natural environments, these constructions are 3-dimensional in form, coming off the wall in various layers suggesting odd terrains, infrastructures and skylines.
The intuitive process of cutting, sorting, applying and constructing this tactile material is integral to its final form and implication. The restrained compositions and varying densities of these collages present a landscape of containment and a sense of buried history. These are roadmaps with no conclusive routes, aerial views of unattainable grounds. The dualities of growth and decay, building and razing, maintenance and destruction are all explored within these quiet peripheries. [via]
