Exhibition Color in Motion, by Rute Cardoso

With 9 paintings, the exhibition Cor em Movimento by the plastic artist and writer Rute Cardoso was installed in the Annex of the Cultural Didactic Space, on the 1st floor of the Legislative Assembly of Santa Catarina between March 11 and 18.


The painting "O Ser Mulher" (above) marks the essence of the show, with vivid colors, well-marked brushstrokes and the woman as a featured figure.

With various painting on canvas techniques, the 9 artistic works by Ruth Cardoso that were part of the exhibition Color in Motion brought more liveliness to the Annex of the Cultural Didactic Space, located on the first floor of Legislative Assembly of Santa Catarina (Alesc), in downtown Florianópolis. Exploring the variety of colors, textures and the movements of brush strokes, Rute presents contemplations and reflections on life and feelings through works full of creative nuances. In addition to the free forms and the filling of backgrounds, some of the paintings exalt the figure of the woman and the feminine nature. "Care","color and soul","Being a Woman"and "Life” are the titled works that were part of the show.

The warm colors of the work show the sentimentality in the brushstrokes. Among the paintings on display, four had no established title, generating even greater reflection on the meanings of the paintings. Measuring 80 centimeters in width and 100 centimeters in height, the painting “Vida”, carefully positioned next to the exhibition’s name, is larger than the others, which were made on canvases measuring 80 centimeters both in height and in width.

Color in Motion was one of the milestones of Alesc's special program for the "Women's Month", as the 08th of March is International Women's Day. cor-and-alma-rutecardoso-willian-s-schutz
