The artist Iuri Sarmento works with the new Baroque, in the transition between the sensuality of colors and textures with a rich reference to the history of art. A compliment to the excess and saturation, his works investigate the use of the human body and fashion as an aesthetic element. His works appeared in the XXIII National Exhibition of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, in Belo Horizonte / MG in 1991, in the IV Hall of the Museum of Modern Art in Salvador, Bahia, in 1997, at the exhibition Contemporary Painting Brazil-Portugal, in Leiria, Portugal, in 2001 and in EMERGêNCIAS, at FUNARTE Capanema Museum, in Rio de Janeiro, in 2005. At the Biennial of Curitiba, Sarmento’s works of art translate the free composition of the clay, which conquers space and adds value to the image interpretation.
