Barros de, Geraldo - Geraldo De Barros : Fotoformas
Combines photographic material from the 1950 with works completed shortly before the artist's death in 1998, underlying the intensity and diversity of this unconventional artist. Within a period of only a few years he had transformed a range of ideas into reality, ignoring all conventions and rules. He combined playfulness with the strict rules of design, made private moments in his life into public property and combined rational design with feelings in unique way, linking rationality and emotionality.
Pioneer in abstract photography in Brazil, Geraldo de Barros was active in this field between 1947 and 1951. With his serie “Fotoforma” the artist renewed photographic creation in his country and is nowadays worldwide exhibited.
Since 2014, the Fotoforma’s fund is owned by the Instituto Moreira Salles in Rio de Janeiro.
