The focus is certainly on colour in Paulo Monteiro's work. Indeed, many of his recent canvases border on the monochromatic. Hints of shapes creep into the picture from the sides, or make their tentative way across the canvas. Textured lines provide form that interrupts the free flow of colour only slightly, or bisect the landscape. The simplicity and decisiveness is instinctively compelling, no reasons needed.
The exhibition also includes a number of sculptures by the same artist.
