About

Coimbra, 1979

Francisco Mendes Moreira began painting in 2003 and exhibiting in 2007. His work operates with color and emotional deformation. Moreira’s practice is a way of solving problems that are based on an intuitive work process, which can be triggered by contemporary culture, endorsing psychological and political aspects. His series are predominantly made with oil pastels, painted on found and glued cardboard packaging. Alternating between realism and abstraction, Moreira’s images pose these eternal questions; where did we come from, what came before us and who else is out there? The different media and surfaces, the number of themes and even the scale are all circumstantial, in the sense that it is your everyday life that determines the studio’s processes. The act of analysis has little space in the specific creative process, but, observing the artist’s works, it can be concluded that Moreira’s practice is a continuous commentary and staging of events related of events related to the human condition.
