Sérgio Fernandes

BIOGRAPHY


Lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal.


The artistic research of Sérgio Fernandes (b. 1985) is based on the direct relationship between light and color, and how that relationship is transposed to the painting.
He works mainly with oil in large-scale paintings in which he questions the relationship between painting and spectator. The works in gouache on paper present a more intimate side of that research where the painting arises as a sign of power. The tons, more or less intense, more or less contrasting, suggest different depths and tensions that configure shapes and spaces which will slowly reveal themselves. There is a refinement of the technique that deletes the brushes out of the surface of the paper. The spectator is confronted with an engaging force that transports him/her to a deep state of meditation.


Sérgio has participated in several residencies such as: Cortex Frontal (Arraiolos, 2020), Inter.meada (Alvito, 2017) and PIV Arte e Pesquisa (São Paulo, 2016) and exhibits since 2008, mentioning the solo exhibitions: “inside here there are no stars” Kubikgallery (Oporto, 2019), “I will conquer you” Kubikulo Project (Oporto, 2018), “um blue” CACPS (Ponte de S r, 2018), “SOLITUDE” Kubikgallery (Oporto, 2016), “THINGS BEHIND SOMEWHERE” ECM (Lisbon, 2014) and the collective exhibitions: “Uteropias, Situação 21” Kubikgallery (Oporto, 2021), “Preliminares”, Espaço C.A.M.A (São Paulo, 2021), “Presente Contínuo: Aquisições recentes da coleção Norlinda e José Lima”, Centro de Arte Oliva, (São João da Madeira, 2020), “Sindicato dos Pintores, Pedro Chorão + Sérgio Fernandes” O Armário (Lisbon 2018), “Enlace” Central Galeria (Sao Paulo, 2017), “Force, Strength, Power, (Parte I e II)” Galeria Baginski (Lisbon, 2017), “HORIZON”, Biblioteca Camões (Lisbon 2015), “CONCRETE MIRRORS”, Crypt Gallery, (London, 2012), “ABRE ALAS 8”, Galeria A Gentil Carioca, Centro de Artes Hélio Oiticica (Rio de Janeiro, 2012), “Aduana” MNHNC (Lisbon, 2011), “D COUVERTS” “RESUM 1 & 2” Trafic Galerie, (Paris, 2009 e 2011) and “ZIP BUNG”, Sala do Veado, MNHNC (Lisbon, 2011).
