EDGAR DO VALLE

Interpretative Realms
July 31 – August 20, 2015
Reception: Thursday, August 6, 2015 6-8 PM

The breathtaking watercolor landscapes and marine scenes of Edgar do Valle evoke the sense of a fever dream, with white trees reaching into a fiery sky and surreal, precise reflections floating on looking-glass lakes. Although his works are, in essence, figurative, do Valle thinks of his landscapes in terms of abstract compositions. The colors that he applies to his settings are imaginative, not limited by the constraints of reality. The artist admits, however, that the flora and formations in his work may be inspired by his trips to the Amazon and Pantanal regions of Brazil, but they are not based on any specific scene. Rather, do Valle organizes the shapes and forms of trees and rocks as he would any abstract painting, seeking an idea of balance, proportions, pleasant colors, and a sense of space.

An architect by trade, do Valle says his work is strongly influenced by the two years he spent in Chicago as a Fulbright scholar, studying under the famous modern architect, Mies van der Rohe. A native of Brazil, do Valle currently lives in Porto Alegre, where he is the director at Valle Architects.
