Luis Athouguia

Luis Athouguia was born in Portugal in 1953. He has Certification in Arts and Design by IADE, Lisbon. He exhibits since 1983, in more than two hundred important events.
"... His painting reveals a search for interior and exterior signs, in constant dialogue between light and matter, between the voices of the soul and the almost carnal forms that seem to inhabit some of his paintings as living and autonomous organisms. Throughout all his work passes, in unmistakable tones, an expressed wish or an uncontained dream of freedom and harmony, that echoes in all of us." "In the intimacy of his work... the minimum gesture reflects a personal religion or healthy skepticism and a fragile equilibrium in the stroke that defines the frisson of his own vertiginous life, and is an eternal rebirth to the daily exercise of meditation, as in gestured Zen... evoking, in the symbolism of his wise strokes, the memory of the gothic mirages of Manuelism in search of those spiritual Indias where, in vortexes of light, is sighted the hope of redemption..." "They are pathetic pilgrimages through oneiric, erotic and sentimental landscapes, an almost obsessive fascination by the curvilinear escape, alluding to a deliberately interminable spatiality. ". The solitary grandness of the interior landscapes drapes itself in capricious forms that the prodigious luxuriousness of sensibility and imagination creates, a bit each day, a bit in each work." "... Pieces of dreams, gardens for our eyes to wander in, obscure remembrances, intermittent illuminations, fugitive words, windows of his soul, his natural breathing... Luis' painting is encounter and divergence, a certain dose of solitude, an echo, a tenuous bridge, the light of dawn, the discreet undulating of the sea in the landscape dryness, the border between yesterday and today, a journey project."
