The binding strand of…#8, 2020, técnica mista, 190 x 140 cm

The painting of Rui Miguel Leitão Ferreira consists of a delicate balance between what is stated and what happens. With foundations that are simultaneously both profoundly physical as well as spiritual, his work is a development of the intersection of different forms, rhythms, and ways of doing. Medium, material and action come together in a dialogue which is both thoughtful and intuitive, focussing on the relationship between the act of making marks on the canvas, the outcome of those marks, and what we make of what appears.

With its criss-cross of overlapping layers, the dialogue shows us the desire of the artist to make a mark – applying the paint directly to the canvas, accepting the unknown result – when he covers, stamps, strips and lays bare the various layers of which the painting consists.
