By Roberto Evangelista.
“Visionary, his paintings move us to other experiences of plans and senses, instigating us to investigate our power to mentalize and dream, cosmic dimensions and the infinite of the dream. Their visions never |alienate us from the context, though undefined from reality, but they remind us of the intimacy of Mother Nature, her vibratory flows, and torrents of energy, providing a magical interaction of the gaze with the fullness of feeling.
His refined technique is at the service of a process that leaves us perplexed and amazed at what the artist re-harvests: from his imagination as an instrument of knowledge and as identification with the invisible of the world. And who more than the artist to ascend to this degree of contact with nature, visualizing its subtlest emanations? Who else to translate the pictorial wonders from their moments of asceticism? Who more than the artist to make the light shine in our retinas so lacking in real luminosity?” Full text in portuguese
Roberto Evangelista – Plastic artist, participated in several national and international Biennials.
I am Brazilian, I was born in the city of Matias Barbosa MG, on February 13, 1959. In 1974, I started my first artistic works and studies. I developed several styles in painting, predominantly visionary and hyper-realism.
I try to promote through my paintings a dialogue and relationship that exists in the human conception with nature, recognizing and receiving the strength, magic, and beauty that emanates from it. In a highly immediate and superficial world, I invite you to “dive” into detail in depth, in order to “rescue” and “reconnect” with nature and its essence.
My wish is that these reflections can generate an “awakening” of the importance of each one in the preservation of the planet. I dedicate myself to detailing the richness and magnitude that exists in nature. It is my way of recognizing, being grateful and having love for nature.
In the journey to improve my work, I carry out field research. I have a habit of visiting places where there are forests, where nature is more preserved. Faced with this panorama is that currently, I look for inspirations and portraiture on my large canvases, nature as it is.
I place myself in the place of apprentice of life and I have been perceiving, feeling the dimension of a greater force that rules the universe that we call God, and it is with this Grand Master that I try to tune in and put myself in the place of receiving inspiration for my visionary paintings.
For a long time, I signed my name and surname as Alexandre Segrégio, for a very simple and valuable reason for me. Now, I am signing as Alexandre Luiz Segrégio, for the recognition of my mother, Izabel, who introduced me to the people by my composite name. It was she who taught me with her examples to connect me in the spiritual, which motivated me, supported and helped my entrance and training in artistic painting and become what I am today.
I also want to express my gratitude to my wife for all that we have spent together, her love for our family, and for giving me the necessary support so that I can always improve my work.
