Rui Moreira 

Rui Moreira, studied in Ar.Co and in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and, presently, teaches Drawing at Ar.Co. "My basis is always drawing, drawing as a field of risk and nervous relationship with the world. My most recent drawings, are drawings of physical experience of the relation of my body with the Sahara desert and with the chaos of the Arab architecture. My sculpture is abstract and exists in non-places that are physically interior, psychological landscapes. The dominant feeling that connects the sculptures to the landscapes is desire. I am interested in everything that cannot be put into words, is not spoken or is spoken very quietly. It is not just about creating new forms and new techniques, but also about creating/opening new territories for art."
