Inside the studio
Saatchi Art

From Mario's Saatchi Art Interview: «I don’t sketch. I plan, but I do it in my head. In most of my paintings, I start by throwing paint, trying not to overthink or anticipate anything. So my initial approach is – in part – based on chance, on small random accidents – it doesn’t rely exclusively on my persistence or technique. From then on, I keep adding layers of paint until I feel there’s nothing more I can do to make the piece consistent and somewhat complete. I can finish a painting in a few minutes or I can have it in my studio for weeks until I feel the piece has its own value and presence and there’s nothing more I can add to it.»

Vultus
Grace Denker Gallery, Hamburg
Mar 31 - Jul 31 2017

The «Vultus» collection by Mario Henrique is based on the concept of hypernormalisation - a term first coined by the Russian anthropologist Alexei Yurchak to portray a “fake world” created by corporations and kept stable by politicians, due to their inability do deal with the complex aspects of the “real world”.

The British filmmaker Adam Curtis would later use the term as the main subject for his 2016 documentary, elaborating on how this fake and simplified world is designed to manipulate the general population, thus mining the overall perception of reality.

«Vultus» means faces, as in appearance or look. These paintings depict victims of this warped reality in which we are immersed, namely refugees and migrants. The purpose of it is to bring those faces out of obscurity and consequently offer some resistance to the hypernormalisation of the world.

«ICON»
Casino Lisboa Art Gallery
25 Sep - 6 Nov 2016

All painting is theft. A steal from reality. A rational reinterpretation of light, based on memories and tainted by imagination. There is too much information in the human figure to be summarized in a portrait. A painter’s job is to edit this information, to discriminate. The parts symbolize the whole, which is never conclusive. A painting is soulless, but it promotes synergies between the painter and the observer. A silent dialogue that makes art possible.
