What a beautiful statement: „Painting is more than work, it is life; it calls upon instinct and demands relentless practice.“ This is what I call a dedicated artist. For Brazilian-born Marcelo Daldoce „art making is a calling, study, leisure, therapy and pleasure.“ And we can all be part of it while enjoying his marvelous watercolor paintings. But they are technically more than just paintings.
Because after the actual act of painting, the artist starts to fold his work in geometric patterns and by doing this he withdraws its two-dimensionality. His work comes to life and the figures in it seem to literally live in the paintings as if they inhabit it, like a house or rather a beautiful home created by an outstanding artist.
