RESIGNATION, 2018. Oil and soft pastel on paper.
Having initially arisen from the interest in investigating the relationships between femininity and nature within the perspective of the occult, "Resignation" became the newest work of the visual artist from Pernambuco, Gio Simões. The work, which immediately refers to the archetypal attributes of the letter of the hangman in the Tarot - whispering, in a dreamlike flight over time, the dimension of the suspension as a mystical gesture and the tension that, in the impasse, precedes the impulse - reveals not only a new aesthetic language for Gio as an artist but, and in an inseparable way, a new moment of spiritual immersion that crosses it. Here the new one urges a space-time rift where what exists takes on ancestral spirit and relevance, and becomes a necessary part of the great dialogue that is the Mystery. Every woman is mystical, every woman is in herself a miracle, all nature, something of magic that can not be explained like this, with any word whatsoever. But the Brazilian artist Gio Simões explains in her paintings and photographs, dot by dot, trace to the line, the royalty, the greatness and the immensity that every woman has and is. Whith secret signs, as a particular tarot of powerful letters, with goddesses, witches, fairies, beings of the sky, land or sea, which correspond a little to the archetypes that we all carry inside, and that time and again escape for a walk. Like a precious ancestral bag of art, love, and feminine pleasure. From art, love and pleasure to being a woman. #seeallthiswoman #iMAE
