Artist Statement:


Art, what is art? from where it comes?


...... The most important in my work, is to be connected and linked with the painting, which open the possibility to create a real visual art. The technical aspects; composition, equilibrium, color harmonies, etc... serves to express with freedom feelings that came to my heart......forms, lines sprout showing in visual terms this feelings, sometimes a very silent feeling, abstraction with rhythmic movement. My work is just abstract, expression abstract, gestural or minimalist.


Aureo Antunes



"When I am in a painting, I'm not aware of what I'm doing. It is only after a sort of 'get acquainted' period that I see what I have been about. I have no fears about making changes, destroying the image, etc, because the painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through. It is only when I lose contact with the painting that the result is a mess. Otherwise there is pure harmony, an easy give and take, and the painting comes out well." Jackson Pollock


"An art which isn't based on feeling isn't an art at all ... feeling is the principle, the beginning and the end; craft, objective, technique - all these are in the middle." Paul Cezanne


"Colour is the key. The eye is the hammer. The soul is the piano with its many chords. The artist is the hand that, by touching this or that key, sets the soul vibrating automatically." Wassily Kandinsky
