MANUEL CASAL AGUIAR | Drawings of the wind and sun

Sala de Exposições Temporárias | Temporary Exhibitions Room

An overview of sketches made between 2011 and 2012 in a small village in the region of Penaflel, my dweling place since 1989.
Physically isolated, Salgã is a remote place sitiuated in a relatively unspoiled valley, a group of rural buldings clustered in total harmony with the lush vegetation of the landscape.
Experiencing and working in and amongst such landscapes, I consciously limited the colours l used and disciplined the free wheeling of forms and was led to .experience exquisite areas of natural beauty, the variant qualities and the chromatic changes of each season.
These works are therefore an attempt to convey the drama and splendour of nature as well as the passion of our relationship with it.
