The integration of different forms is evident in Maria Nepomuceno’s “Sim” exhibition at The Victoria Miro gallery. The clash of texture, colour and shape creates a mesmerising display, at times playful and chaotic, yet also organic and delicate.
The strange merging of materials appears flesh-like and conscious, injecting a sense of life, movement and growth into the exhibition. The shape and size of every piece is also interesting, each embodying a different character and story.
Nepomuceno’s vibrant display of texture and form nods to a wider cultural context of rope weaving and straw braiding in Rio de Janeiro. Given this vital backdrop, each piece identifies an interchanging between natural forms and the artist’s materials; the branches merge with the paintbrushes and the seedpods merge with the ceramics.
