Among various techniques of expression shown in Cabral's work, lithography appears as an agent of new figurative forms. The sliding brush registers, on the smooth granite, the driving movement that makes emerge something, not seen in his work until now.
The work selection that we have in this show, A Pedra e o Rastro, by the Brazilian artist Cabral is brand new and shows the strong approach to the gestural mood in his work. In this show, the artist presents lithos, monotypes and watercolours with a strong influence of the lithographic process. Regarding this influence is expressed in the exhibition's title: "A Pedra e o Rastro" which means in English "The Stone and the Trail". All because it has to do with the trail that the lithographic process leaves on the different media used by the artist.
The exhibition is a selection of 23 works on paper that shows the artist's moment. The show runs only on Artsy until the end of the month. Cabral is currently exhibiting at Ibirapi Contemporânea, in Lisbon, Portugal.
