If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
About my artwork
More poet than politician or sociologist, the philosophic Plato, 2500 years ago, saw the world as a reminiscent aspect of a universe of the ideas and forms, the unique consistence of the real. The spirit entity for the existence was the absolute (unlimited) contemplation of the Universe, whose archetypes pure, static and permanent shaped themselves, approachable and free in the dimension with which the intellect organized itself with them in knowledge and harmony.
It is in the extent of this myth (legend) of the classic idealism that I feel the “Abstracts” of Alberto D’Assumpcao, whose serenity tell us, as a kind of flowing, the metaphysics of the Universes in peace. This platonic contemplation of the spirit together with the archetypes we can feel and see in these “Abstracts” as a visual projection of the unlimited and at the same time of our humanity. The colour, so typical, as a self-confidence indication of this painter, is established as a thematic evolution in each of his paintings. So, the aesthetics organization of the pictures of this painter D’Assumpcao uses the oneiric combination and fascination that is proper of the contemplative status. Beside we can see associate at the archetypical mite the mechanic’s and regulating ordination of the planetary spheres, the genial modernity of Newton. It is the mystery, the geometry, the controlled space.
All painting is a printed picture, of things and ideas. Alberto’s father, the great painter Manuel D’Assumpcao, said that “pictures are not Painting”. We can understand this thinking of the history of the Abstract. All the artists and visionaries give prominence to the common, social, metaphysic dramas of the existence, always feeling the liberty. All forms of Art of the “Abstract” have the universal inexpressive and cosmic of the spirit looking for his own existence.
It seems to be happened with Plato, the philosopher, whose friends called “the divine”. It seems happened also the same in the paintings of Alberto D’Assumpcao, the classical revival in the “Abstract” of the mite of Felicity.
