Sunday, Lisbon/London-based artist Bruno Pacheco’s first solo exhibition in the USA, explores his interest in painting and its histories. The exhibition consists entirely of paintings on paper. Pacheco’s process involves the constant repetition of an image and its continuous alteration. This repetition implies a permanent search for a point of neutrality in the painting's plan. The subject of the picture and painting are inseparable. Bruno’s paintings are often based on found imagery from the internet and his personal photographs. Selected subject matters range from patterned blankets to mysterious landscapes.
Bruno’s works are held in several major collections, including the Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon), Serralves Museum (Porto), the Kadist Foundation, UBS Collection, and the National Art Gallery of China, Beijing. Bruno has held solo exhibitions at Cultergest, Lisbon and Porto, the Casa deHistorias Paula REGO, Cascais, and Filomena Soares Gallery (Lisbon) and Hollybush Gardens (London). His work was part of the 2014 Sao Paolo Biennial, and has also been included in exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery (London), The Mackintosh Museum (Glasgow), Mudam (Luxemburg) and Serralves Museum (Porto).
