Intro
(...) In his new jewellery Braga uses a great diversity of techniques: collage, photo manipulation, superpositioning of patterns and many ways of applying resins. The complex results refer to all his theme’s and preoccupations, layer upon layer, fragment by fragment. As in a fabric he intertwines emotions with reality, longing with loss. (...)

Artist list

Célio Braga
Celio Braga dislikes borders; raised in Brazil, he spend many years in the USA and in Europe. Neither does he concern himself with the definitions that divide the arts: he shifts casually between the applied and fine arts, between photography, installations, performance and jewellery. There is one frontier though that he can’t deny: the finiteness of things. It is this very restriction that lies at the core of his artistic output; everything he creates testifies to the irrevocable temporary nature of lust, of love, of life.

In his new jewellery Braga uses a great diversity of techniques: collage, photo manipulation, superpositioning of patterns and many ways of applying resins. The complex results refer to all his theme’s and preoccupations, layer upon layer, fragment by fragment. As in a fabric he intertwines emotions with reality, longing with loss. On the gallery’s FrontRoom wall he will show an abundance of objects and jewellery; a installation like a gossamer interface between us and infinity, the realm that can be either brightly sparkling or pitch-black.
