About

Pilar Corrias is pleased to announce ‘Remarks on Colour': an exhibition of a new works by Juliࠣo Sarmento, his first with the gallery. Born in Lisbon in 1948, Juliࠣo Sarmento studied Painting and Architecture at Escola Superior de Belas Artes in Lisbon where he received his MA in 1974. One of the most important artists of his generation, Sarmento has exhibited extensively since the 1970s. Working across painting, collage, sculpture, photography, and video Sarmento has developed a unique practice characterized by a concise visual vocabulary that explores themes of memory, transgression, seduction and desire. The richness and complexity of Sarmento's work lies in its system of free-floating signifiers that travel between works and across the boundaries of medium. The use or recurring motifs such as hand gestures, parts of bodies and architectural floor plans generate a free-play of unsettling associations that refuse to settle into meaning. Taking its title from Ludwig Wittengstein's philosophical notes of the same name, Remarks on Colour expands Sarmento's ongoing dissection of the mechanisms of looking to examine our sensory perception of colour.
