Drawing in the Work of Fernando Lanhas

Fernando Lanhas

Sala de Exposições Temporárias | Temporary Exhibitions Room

Opportune in every respect but also as a mark of our regard for the thought and work of Fernando Lanhas, Lugar do Desenho is pleased to show this exhibition alongside the exhibition that the Serralves Foundation has devoted to him.
Both have the merit of revealing Fernando Lanhas in “full”, that is in his pluri-disciplinarity. Surely the value of the Drawing is inferred from the methodology of such probing, i.e. drawing as a means and an end in itself.
Pure drawing, looking for an asceticism to which it always surrenders.
Deprived of all trimmings, his drawing takes us through a firmness of tone but with a flexibility open to the most demanding sensitivities. Fascination leads us to believe that drawing is where it seems not to be!
