Save the Date | Virgilio Ferreira
Private View | 13 October 3 – 6pm | Champagne
Hugely talented Portuguese photographer Virgilio Ferreira looks at the uncanny and intangible. His light-as-a-feather photography weaves in and out of focus, playing with perception and sight.
Looking to capture impressions that are vague or intangible, he includes notions of social and everyday life. Creatively exploring the analogue photographic process Ferreira attempts to deny any fixed reality or a the vision that is offered by the camera. Aesthetically, the images have many similarities with qualities of painting or drawing.
Deliberately using a process which is difficult to control he simultaneously articulates many tools and elements during the capture of the image. These include: experimenting with focus, or the lack of it, multiple layers, obstructions, appearances and disappearances, as well as liquid colours. He explores the representativity of the invisible and creates atmospheres with subjective impact on reception, challenging the nature of perception.
