Six centuries of artistic creation
In 1966, thanks to a scholarship, Jorge Pinheiro travelled across Europe, where he discovered new forms of expression, such as geometric abstractionism and constructivism. This experience led him to a first break with figuration, beginning one of the most fertile periods of work and reflection around geometric abstraction and colour. It was the beginning of a period of experimentation in which he abandoned the conventional format of painting and designed a series of "sculptural" pieces made with common materials such as plywood and industrial paint, a rigorous work on geometric form and modulations, gradations, chromatic rhythms and the formal relationship between painting and the medium.
