Ricardo Alcaide

Nasceu em Caracas, Venezuela, 1967. Vive e trabalha em São Paulo, Brasil.

Sua obra reflete as inquietudes do artista em relação ao encontro entre a precariedade das metrópoles e o Modernismo – referência sócio-cultural e política da América Latina – e uma intenção de medir o estado atual da sociedade através da leitura de seus dejetos e as múltiplas interpretações que dela derivam. Fotografias, pinturas, esculturas e desenhos mostram a experiência da cidade e como o homem nela habita. Ausência e impossibilidades vitais são transmitidas através da análise das presenças e das construções arquitetônicas, até chegar a geometrias abstratas.

Seus últimos projetos de destaque em 2013: a obra Intrusions, para a Galeria Tajimar, em Santiago; a participação no programa SOLO curado pela dupla Julieta Gonzalez e Pablo Leon de La Barra para a terceira edição da Artrio, Rio de Janeiro, e o solo project para a Pinta, Nova Iorque, curado por José Roca, do departamento de Arte Latino-Americana da Tate. Também, no mesmo ano, tornou-se parte da plataforma interativa Abstraction in Action, dedicada à produção contemporânea de arte abstrata na América Latina, curada por Cecilia Fajardo-Hill em parceria com a conceituada Sayago & Pardon Collection.

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, 1967. Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.

His work reflects the concerns of the artist in relation to the meeting between the precariousness of metropolises and Modernism – politics and cultural reference in Latin American – and an intention to measure the current state of society by reading its waste and the multiple interpretations that derive from it. Photographs, paintings , sculptures and drawings show the experience of the city and as man dwells in it. Absence and vital impossibilities are transmitted through the analysis of presence and architectural buildings, until the abstract geometries.

Highlighted projects in 2013: Intrusions for Tajimar Gallery in Santiago, participation in the SOLO program curated by Julieta Gonzalez and Pablo Leon de la Barra for the third edition of ArtRio, Rio de Janeiro, and solo project for Pinta, NY, curated by José Roca, from the Latin American Art department of Tate. Also in the same year, became part of Abstraction in Action, interactive platform dedicated to contemporary abstract art production in Latin America, curated by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill in partnership with renowned Sayago & Pardon Collection.
