Gabriel Pitan Garcia: Sopro - Janaina Torres

São Paulo Brasil

Gabriel Pitan Garcia

Sopro

Gabriel Pitan Garcia’s first solo show, Sopro (Breath) features large drawings made of various materials, such as silk, aluminum, and cardboard, and distinguished by a monochromatic palette that emphasizes gray. Spirals, tornadoes and whirlpools reveal a voracious gesturality recurrent in the work, “a whirlwind in the head and in the soul,” in the words of Thiago Honório, who signs the curator’s text.

VISTAS

A certain storm, a whirlwind in the head and in the soul, throbs in the traces rendered evident by the most varied states of mind, dilated by surfaces with various textures: hard, interrupted, shattered traces, made with graphite, more slippery and calligraphic when carried out with India ink, more blurred and elusive when executed with charcoal, or even more continuous and uniform if produced with a permanent marker. Still about this whirlwind, it is not fortuitous the kinetic presence of the spiral, the tornado, the whirlpool (a given voracity), which is recurrent in them.

— Thiago Honório, curator

BIO

Gabriel Pitan Garcia, a member of the very new generation of Brazilian art, displays the marks of restlessness and experimentation, in a production of a strongly personal nature conceived as an open diary, made up of pages of challenging breadth. In paintings and, more recently, drawings, perfected during the pandemic, Gabriel Pitan Garcia (São Paulo, 1994) sometimes captures his surroundings and the energy of the people around him; at other times, he dives into explicit records of an intimate and profound place. In both cases, he has a free gesture, without restricting himself to techniques, and also freely explores media and materials to give body to his work. Using the possibilities of drawing and collage, Pitan Garcia brings together cut-outs, fabrics and papers, creating images that sometimes indicate portraits, sometimes build landscapes dominated by strange creatures and fragments of bodies.

The reduced color palette (blacks, whites, ochres and greys) further enhances the recording of a nervous but precise gesture. The same operation takes place on the canvases, conceived from the appropriation of objects, where impressions of their social and family surroundings result in a range of textures, imperfections and volumes: pieces of clothing, wires and plants, covered in thick layers of black acrylic paint, are thus imprisoned on the canvas, as if challenging the perishability – of the materials and the emotional charge they contain. A graduate in Visual Arts from FAAP, Pitan Garcia, who now lives and works in Barcelona, Spain, was a member of Casa Dez Barra Doze, a collective of studios in São Paulo, and was one of the founders and managers of BREU, an independent art space also in São Paulo, which hosted exhibitions, workshops, courses and debates.
