In the beginning was the Landscape. Greenery, lake and mountain views were shrouded in a fine mist, lightly designed in pastel-colored patches. The interaction among pictorial elements flowed harmoniously, hinting at virtual silence. Yet, days went by and the wind blew profusely, chasing serenity away. Thus, in Felipe Góes’ new series of paintings, matter has thickened, brushstrokes have bristled, and colors vibrated in violent confrontations: waters lit on red, orange and magenta-hued fires; jarring greens have seized the skyline, forecasting mysterious dawns; the lava from erupting volcanoes have polluted the skies to the point of transforming them into earth reflections, not the other way round. It seems like the cosmos inhales gravity, bristling nature or what’s left of it.

The daily cycle governing life – whether the painter’s life, or our daily routines’, or nature’s, or the planet’s, or even the celestial bodies’ settled in galaxies – is self-paced, it doesn’t depend upon wishes and wills. In the face of this ineffable reoccurrence, the illusion of changelessness asserts itself. However, the circadian rhythm transmutes the indisputable in these paintings, presenting a new conundrum: in the beginning was the Movement.

Felipe Goés

Working mainly with images of landscapes and cosmos, Felipe uses painting to discuss the production and perception of images in contemporary times, and address issues related to nature, environment, and our existence on planet Earth.

The images are not based on photographs, or even on real places. For the artist, it is important that the final image emerges from the creative process, mixing memory and fantasy.

He has held solo exhibitions at Galeria Kogan Amaro (São Paulo, 2019 and 2022; and Zurich, 2022), Galeria Murilo Castro (Belo Horizonte, 2018), Instituto Moreira Salles (Poços de Caldas, 2017), Galeria Virgílio (São Paulo, 2016 and 2018), Central Galeria de Arte (São Paulo, 2014), Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art (Arizona, USA, 2014), Museu de Arte de Goiânia (Goiânia, 2012) and Usina do Gasômetro (Porto Alegre, 2012).

He participated in the group exhibitions “Color Bind” (Kogan Amaro Gallery, São Paulo, 2021), “Utopia of collecting the pluralism of art” (Marcos Amaro Foundation, Itu, 2019), “Fragments of a pictorial discourse” (Roberto Alban Gallery, Salvador, 2017), “2nd International Biennial of Asunción” (Asunción, Paraguay, 2017) and “Mapping Spaces” (Kentler International Drawing Space, New York, USA, 2016).

He has participated in artist residencies at School of Visual Arts (SVA) online (New York, USA, 2021), Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art (Arizona, USA, 2014) and Instituto Sacatar (Itaparica, BA, 2012).
