João Trevisan (b. 1986 in Brasilia, Brazil)

Lives and works in Brasilia, Brazil.

 

​His work consists of exploring questions related to the maxim of an object dealing with matter, weight, lightness, tension, articulation, balance, and politics. Trevisan’s work is an exercise of balance and rhythm. His paintings with black backgrounds and vertical lines of varying thickness discuss intervals. Almost like a musical sheet where the reading of what is present part from the empty space: from the interval. In his sculptures, he explores weights and supports between wood, metals, and gravity. Using elements found on the banks of the railroad, Trevisan groups and organizes them in different ways, producing new bodies.
