Art She Hearts

These installations by Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira burst into the gallery space, smacking you in the face and making you a part of its theatre. Bringing the space to life, the tree trunks force the spectators to negotiate around the shapes and forms, becoming aware of the floor, the ceiling, and the space we inhabit.

Oliveira’s installations are made from peels of scavenged wood which he manipulates into his pipe formations before painting them.You can see the natural decay and splits of the wood in the final works, reflecting their past life in São Paulo’s urban landscape. The overall aesthetic is one that combines decay and growth, bursting into new life and into ours as if to remind us to the inevitable process of decay and rehabilitation.
