Feline intrigue defines this composition by Andre de Miranda. A father and son stroll mysteriously across night's background, interrupted by flashes of white tracery, their movements synchronized masterfully. Says the artist, "I lived for four years in Tres Lagoas, in the interior of Mato Grosso in east-central Brazil. This series related to animals was developed in this period of my life. It is an arid region of fantastic beauty and a very hot climate. They are creatures inspired in the animals that I saw, but in truth they are creatures of the unconscious, they are the face of solitude, of fear, in short the infinity of animals we create internally." This work is executed using linocut techniques, excavating the design before printing it in offset typographic ink on paper.
This work arrives unframed. The artist suggests that the linocut should be protected from direct sunlight and should not be stored in a humid environment. The frame should not include a glass covering as this may cause eventual damage to the paper.
Titled "Tal pai, tal filho" in Portuguese.
