About the artist Erick Amarante:
Perceptions of the world
Art is a form of mental movement. There is the dynamism of those who create, but also of those who observe. In this game, the images lead paths of understanding the world, whether through painting, watercolor, photography or sculpture. The biggest challenge is to think and enable plastic forms and contents to emerge.
Erick Amarante brings to the scene in his works compositions that weave possibilities for visual interpretation in which, often, the real and the imaginary dialogue to break boundaries and weave connections between what can and what appears to be an image or perception of the world.
An omnipresence in his work is the conviction of the relativity of things and the importance of feeling a part of what surrounds us. It is not a question of mere engagement, but of an attentive doing in which webs of (re) connection are constructed between the apparently known and the mysterious or unknown.
Visual creation is one of the existing platforms for these links to remain strong. Music is another way. Both can meet through the photographic image that crystallizes the existence of the most varied forms, always with the conviction that support is the least important when it comes to freedom to create.
