BREED ART STUDIO PRESENTS: “THE MARRIAGE” A SOLO EXHIBITION BY ALEXANDRE MADUREIRA A PORTUGUESE PAINTER BASED IN BARCELONA.

In the art world, everything’s already been painted but I haven’t finished yet! I want to seduce through the altered image of reality and the needs of a people, the citizen who has become a consumer. I want to change the relationship between signifier and signified, between reference and linguistic sign, to confuse, to move, to seduce. Plucking icons from the annals of art history and fusing them with fragments of popular culture, Alexandre Madureira, in a multifaceted cubist language, answers the call of Postmodernism: to test the master narrative. In Madureira’s imaginary museum, hierarchies collapse. Dichotomies of high and low art, image and reality, are challenged. In his large-scale compositions, we see the contemporary mind””the ideas, interactions, needs, desires, and cultural elements of the times reflected. The proliferation of images through mass media and the speed of visual consumption disrupt the notion of time. Histories overlap. Madureira’s pictorial surfaces speak to this temporal speeding and contradict any timeline of visual culture.
