Gil Heitor Cortesão
Gil Heitor Cortesão paints places that are generally empty (private apartments or public spaces) in a style that
at first glance seems realist, and yet stirs a vague feeling of unease.
The strangeness comes primarily from the fact that on each occasion he insinuates something disturbing into
these spaces: it may be furniture we have trouble identifying, paintings that seem to be coming away from the wall, a
huge dark patch in the middle of a meeting room or a map of Europe sketched on the wall of an apparently modern
apartment.
This strangeness is heightened by the disconcerting appearance of the image; it looks like a worn
photograph…
