RUBEM VALENTIM: AFRO ATLANTIC CONSTRUCTIONS
Construções afro-atlânticas [Afro-Atlantic Constructions] reproduces 99 artworks by the painter, sculptor and engraver Rubem Valentim?s (Salvador, Brazil, 1922 ? São Paulo, Brazil, 1991), a key figure in 20th century Brazilian art and Afro-Atlantic Histories. From the 1950s onward, Valentim incorporated the language of geometric abstraction to create complex compositions that redesigned and reconfigured Afro-Atlantic symbols, emblems and references. In this process, Valentim transformed the European artistic languages that dominated most of the art production in Brazil and worldwide during the 1950?60s (geometric abstraction, constructivism and concretism), blending them with African references, mostly through drawings and diagrams representing the deities of Afro-Brazilian religions?known as orishas?such as Shango?s double-edged axe, Oshoosi?s arrow and Osanyin?s rods.
