Los Rojos

25 Nov 2011 to 21 Jan 2012

His first solo show in Spain for many years, Los Rojos was in fact the first exhibition by the artist following the large survey Pedro Cabrita Reis. One after another, a few silent steps, which opened this year in July at the Museu Colecção Berardo in Lisbon.

Cabrita’s works are undergirded by a profound interest in nature, landscape, architecture and colour. Cabrita possesses his own scale and dimensions with which he measures the world and confronts his surrounding environs. The artist uses his own body to impose a human dimension, taking himself as the canon and the style. The pieces included in this exhibition also reveal his penchant for all kinds of materials: building, industrial, chairs and other kinds of furniture. Cabrita amasses these objects and then uses them to render his own particular take on the world around him.

Pedro Cabrita Reis is a seminal figure in Portuguese art.
