Six centuries of artistic creation
A versatile artist, Ângelo de Sousa devoted himself to painting, sculpture, screen printing, ceramics and photography. In the 1970s his painting focused mainly on abstraction, on surfaces that, looking like monochromes, result from a rigorous work on colour that adds, opposes, superimposes tiny chromatic particles, which build a stark and simultaneously vibrant surface of light and colour. "Verão 83" (Summer of 83) is part of a series of pictorial experiences that occupied the painter in the early 1980s. They are tiny combinations of colour, diluted in a very simple, fine-line geometry, almost in an abstraction of absolute refinement.
