José Pedro Croft
Portuguese, b. 1957
Follow

José Pedro Croft is considered one of the primary forces behind the revival of Portuguese sculpture that began in the 1980s. Croft, who represented Portugal in the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017, is widely known for his pared-down geometric sculptures and paintings. The sculptures are often made of industrious materials, like wood and metal, and frequently feature glass and mirrored surfaces. Croft is also known for his application of vibrantly colored paints and his play with light, shadow, and color in ways that give his sculptures an architectural dimension, creating tension between the works and the spaces in which they are displayed. Today Croft’s work can be found in the collections of several museums, including France’s Centre Pompidou, Spain’s Museo Reina Sofía, and Brazil’s Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo and Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro.
