Artist: Martim Dinis
My painting explores the figurative as the space for pictorial research from a personal point of view. My journey is made through a return to the memory. In this memory there are also repressive elements, which carved out ways of life and thought, and the need to expose them. It is in this sense that my works are developed, not in the sense of solving or attacking, but by bringing the power of ambiguity, atonement and associated poetics, in an understanding of identity construction, in a delayed search to leave the marginal place in society.
