Hugo Barata

EMBATE, 2005

Embate continues the visual memory exploration that Hugo Barata has developed through paintings based on drawings and images previously performed or observed, and that now attempts to recapture from memory straight onto canvas. The work becomes an exercise of storytelling shaped by the staging of diverse elements of non-linear narrative to attest the impossibility of retelling the story in one single image.
