by Madalena Aires

14th May - 30th June

Soul Tastings is related to the enjoyment of a moment, and it’s about capturing the true essence and feel beyond the mere appearance of things. It’s also about food and guilty pleasure, and the physical tension created by the initial impulse or desire and the subsequent consummation of that inner need. 

The intention is to reinforce and amplify the experience by scaling up small objects, to turn the unnoticeable more noticeable and to transform the invisible aspects into more vibrant and visible ones. Coffeecups, teacups and saucers, kitchen tools, a cut open pomegranate, a portion of fruit, all of these things are captured as a reminder of the pleasure of living, with all its flaws, chaos and beauty. 

 There is a sort of realistic approach given to the subject. But not as a pure imitation, nor artificial and meaningless image, it purposely captures the attention like a physical magnet that pulls you in, as a trick of mind, in the end as a gentle opening window to a poetic vision. 


Madalena Aires was born in Oporto (1980). She had started her career as an architect (Oporto School of Architecture FAUP) in Oporto, then went to Lisbon and most recently to London for a full decade. During this period, she had deepened her passion for drawing and painting, with courses at Slade School of Fine Art (UCL) and at Central Saint Martins (UAL) in London. 

 Madalena is a Saatchi Art artist featured in several collections and has a recent publication on Artit Issue 13. She has an honorable mention in 2021 The Sunny Art Prize, sponsored by the Art Council England. Also she has an honorable mention in 2021 Luxembourg Art Prize, artistic prize organized by the Pinacothèque, a private museum located in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. 

 The pursuit of the ephemeral pleasures, the glimpses of joy, sadness, and true emotions, beyond the mere appearance of things, take a special emphasis on Madalena Aires artwork. The aim is to explore the irony of the apparent invisibility of the observed elements, intimately connected with the everyday life. 

“I want to capture the abstract and yet honest feeling of shine and transparency of the surfaces.” Also, in her work she takes interest in exploring the concept of inside and outside through the elements. The view is always a sort of a plan, a top view, an abstract representation, holiness perspective. Perhaps to do with the need to treat the elements in this kind of a map, where there is a display of hierarchy and balance, and where you clearly can control the articulation in between space and form, module, and composition.
