“‘A work of art doesn’t have to be an answer to what you were doing before. There are artists who do completely different things over the years and critics insist on finding commonalities. With this exhibition, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Niterói, I wanted to recover some of the pleasure of making a discovery, something new’, says the artist.
Although it relates to previous works by using the floor of an environment linked to art as a support, giving the floor the status of painting, the Museum’s large panel presents a new datum by relating to the landscape around the museum instead of rebuilding your architecture. Senise says that it was the material itself that suggested the approach, as the blue carpet resembled the sky and sea of the Bay. It seems inevitable, however, to link the work to the artist’s path, who has already worked with silhouettes and has always been related to landscape and architecture. The relationship between the thumb tacks that hold the silhouettes of seagulls with the nails that marked so many other canvases is also curious.”
