Funduras
Solange Pessoa

In Funduras, Solange Pessoa presents an unexpected quality of minerals: Weightlessness. The artist mobilizes something that is removed from our imaginary and the language of stones and brings geological forces from the depths of the earth to the surface. From surface and weightlessness, singular chromatic movements stand out.

Along this path, from charcoal and genipap pulp to the green of patina, resembling stone and bronze, they pass through colors and form from new relationships of matter, like the fusion of silver with crystal. And in addition to the chromatic axis of these unique relationships, there are the notable orange bonds in the compositions of her paintings.

Here’s a geology lesson from Solange Pessoa: Everything comes from the earth. Composing unusual environments, Pessoa unveils everything concealed underground, allowing the earth’s secrets to emerge in a dreamlike way through the affinities she creates. Through the creation of unique settings, Pessoa reveals hidden aspects of the earth, which manifest themselves in a dreamlike manner through the connections she establishes.

With her installations, paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, and video works, Solange Pessoa constructs landscapes that belong to an underground realm – in so doing she welcomes elements that were once concealed from human perception to exist in the present and populate it with diverse artistic forms. The artist crafts a dream of the earth. This is the concrete matter of the oneirism she has produced over the years. Her works take decades to form and, in the most immediate dimension, attract visitors who come into contact with each part of the exhibition.
