Background Information about Richard Brandao
The roots for the “fragmented” sensory perception date back to the artist’s childhood. Having moved frequently as a child, Brandão became familiar with new surroundings, soaking up peculiarities singular to the countless people, routines, and places he encountered.
We can experience this concept of fragmentation when we visually connect the individual elements in Brandão’s work. Viewing the pieces from close up, we see intriguing, colorful dots resembling an abstract work. With every step back, however, the faces of famous pop icons crystallize. In this way, it is a playful examination of how the unfamiliar becomes familiar, a transformation only possible from a certain distance.
Richard Brandão’s acrylic paintings are a fascinating demonstration of the importance and influence of proximity when it comes to our perceptions.
