henrique oliveira: 'tapumes' at rice gallery, houston, texas

 

 

 

earlier this month we featured the work of brazilian artist henrique oliveira who is currently exhibiting at rice art gallery, houston, texas. we have just received images from the show illustrating oliveira’s installations, which he refers to as ‘tridimensionals’. they have evolved into massive, spatial constructions that combine painting, architecture, and sculpture.

the patterns in oliveira’s work are the visual and tactile qualities of wood that has been exposed to the elements, and though he incorporates new, flexible plywood into his work, his primary material remains the discarded wood collected on the streets of são paulo.
