Pedro Cabrita Reis:

Pedro Cabrita Reis (b. 1956, Lisbon, Portugal) lives and works in Lisbon. His work can be characterized by an idiosyncratic philosophical and poetical discourse across a variety of media: painting; sculpture; photography; drawing; and installations of industrial, found materials and manufactured objects. Centered on questions relative to space and memory, his works gain a suggestive power of association which reach a metaphorical dimension by going beyond the visual.
