Nogueira de Barros

"The body of my work is instinctive and organic, seeking layer by layer for the perfect composition, in the chaos of the imperfection. The target of my searches is always nature, we can find abstraction in all of nature, transforming it into plastic and aesthetic reasons."

2020, nº15 - Acrylic, resin and inks on wood 100 x 81 cm
