Pessoal New York

Hopper's Backyard

Aquele pôster era a certeza de um lugar conhecido. Simples: dois traços – um trilho – e uma casinha. A imagem de um final de tarde no singelo descortinar do dia. Railroad Sunset.


Aquela imagem era a certeza de um lugar conhecido. A melancolia de um final de dia despovoado, mas tão cheio de espíritos. Aqueles que habitam nossas saudades.


E aquela solidão compartilhada desvelava, no fim do dia, as presenças e as ausências de tantas vidas.


Trabalho inspirado na obra de Edward Hopper, pintor, ilustrador e artista gráfico norte-americano que morou, durante a maior parte de sua vida, em Nova Iorque.

That poster was the certainty of a known place. Simple: two traces – one track – a little house. The image of a late afternoon as the day slowly faded. Railroad Sunset.


That image was the certainty of a known place. The melancoly of an unpeopled dawn filled with spirits. The spirits that people our longings.


And within that shared collective loneliness laid all the presences and absences of so many lives.


The present work was inspired by the work of Edward Hopper, north american paintor, who lived, for most of his life, in New York City.
