“Anyone who sees Fábio Magalhães´s paintings has the immediate impression of seeing a photograph instead of a painting due to the realism of the image that the artist portraits.

To paint, Fábio uses photographs of his own body parts, made from drafts previously elaborated. Later on, the photographed images get revised and receive the sensibility of his touch. Added elements are removed, which are able to produce a dramaticity that reveals an artist sensitive to the possibilities of art and mainly of life. An effect that goes much beyond technique.

The nine paintings that make the exhibition The Great Body, were thought as only one and big art piece. The artist made cuts of expressive parts of his anatomy, explored the double meaning of some images, added doses of eroticism to some of them and went through without half intentions.” (Text: Justino Marinho)
