I always thought that freedom is the fundamental element of art. And freedom means being able to use the necessary for the idea of the moment.
Waltercio Caldas started his career in the context of the Brazilian experimental art of the late 60’s. His work is related to Neo-Concretism, the artistic movement that emerged in Rio de Janeiro in the early 70’s with artists as Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica. The multisensorial approach to the artwork was a fundamental issue in the developement of a new concept of art.
Waltercio Caldas explores the boundaries between the presence and the void, what exists and what we don’t see but can intuit or guess, between what is present and that wich is not apparent. The perception of space, the scale and the aesthetics are central traits of his work that translate into visual poetry an invitation for the viewer to reflection.
The precise use of industrial and domestic materials as stainless steel, vinyl, wool, pins and photographs with aseptic and clear shapes.The precise use of these materials, with aseptic and clear shapes, offer a sense of space density, and, at the same time, of accumulation. The use of the structure, surfaces and transparent polished materials reinforce the effect of light and gives visibility and formal coherence to his works.
