Caetano de Almeida Biography

"Viewed in retrospect, Caetano de Almeida's production has been a persistent project of deconstructing ready-made responses, that is, the ready-made idea of painting"[Paulo Herkenhoff, O Delicioso Jardim do Vizinho]. Caetano de Almeida's last compositions are optically charged, chromatic and frequently characterized by patterns made of circular cutouts and holes. The works' overall geometric structure hints at the rich history of brazilian geometric and Neo-concrete art. However, it is de Almeida's intuitive use of colour that provides a unique sense of dynamism all his own.
