Paulo Machado

Acrylic on Canvas

45" X 45"


Inspired by the Abstract Expressionists, paintings by Paulo Machado exude a compelling energy and life force of their own. Typically painted on a large, and sometimes massive scale, Machado's paintings express his love of the natural world-animals, plants, and the sea, as well as his deep interest in human endeavors and spiritual meditation, which he explores through color, pattern, line and various brushwork techniques.

Machado's artistic style has evolved and changed over the years-morphed by his experiences in reaction to the ever-changing world around him. He is particularly interested in exploring various states of the human mind. In his series 1 works, Machado addresses the pitfalls associated with judging what is seen based solely on visual perceptions and aesthetic responses. In his series 2 works, Machado uses line as a symbol of energy and organic flow to contrast the human tendency to need to control, influence, and subdue. In his latest series of works, he incorporates color shapes and large uninterrupted brushstrokes to symbolize emotions, experiences, states of mind and conscious attempts to heal. Machado continues to shift, reinterpret, and revisit his past modes of expression while continually moving forward with new modes of visual communication based on his love of the natural world.
