Paulo Serra
Conheci o Paulo Serra há uns anos atrás, quando este expôs no Palácio da Galeria, em Tavira.
Desenhos de grande formato, fáceis de entender visto que este mostra, através do seu trabalho uma grande abertura, indo directamente ao encontro do espectador, parecendo proclamar que nada há a esconder. De um modo ingénuo, tal como nos trabalhos do movimento “Art Brut”, do século XX, mas sem dúvida contemporâneo, com uma linguagem bem actual, sem vergonha, sem mensagens moralistas, ele fala-nos de coisas que normalmente guardamos para nós próprios.

I met Paulo Serra for the first time a couple of years ago, when he held an exhibition in the Palacio in Tavira. Large drawings, easy to understand works because he shows openess and directness; it seems he want to say that there is nothing to hide. In a way naive, like the work of the “Art Brut” movement from the 20th centrury, but definitely in a contemporary way, in today’s language, without shame, without a moralistic message. He speaks about things you normally keep for yourself.
