Art Exhibition: Bloom - Landscapes of The Mind by Souza

Art Show

Photographer, mixed-media artist, designer, and curator: this is the life of artist Henrique Souza. The Brazilian self-taught photographer began his career in his homeland of Rio de Janeiro at the age of 19, working as a photo assistant for fashion photographers. In 1999 Souza set his eyes on New York where he starts a new chapter of his life as an artist, and his break came in 2003 when he exhibited his collection of photographs at Fire Island Pines in Long Island, New York. Inspired by what he describes as the beauty in life, in mundane objects and real people, Souza is a visual lover – a sort of voyeur. Not one to be confined by rules or expectations, his art comes naturally. His work expresses the dichotomy of modern industrial, time-driven lives, alongside humanity. Intimacy, the need for personal space, curiosity and the mischievous nature of man are echoed in his work. Souza’s works draws upon natural elements found in the fragile world we live in. HIs digital images of landscapes, flora and fauna are transformed with his diverse and masterful photo technics. His creative vision is often displayed in mixed media. Always conveying the mysterious and exotic with charm and wit. He feels he is continually learning and for him, it is all about the journey and the road remains unending. The artist quotes Salvador Dali , the surrealist icon who said “Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it. it is really the surplus of longing that cannot find expression in life or in other ways.” This, for Souza is a succinct description of why he makes art. A visual storyteller, his photographs are intertwined with an array of unconventional materials, including aluminum, acrylic, Lucite, resin, and canvas. What results are moments frozen in time – an exploration of personal space, both sensual and tactile, and a feeling of displacement – being in and out of his creations. This Exhibit is closed Mondays.
