"LINHAS" explores the movement of direction, creating a physical and immaterial mesh that intertwines and detaches from the canvas, capturing and freezing its energy and vitality. It invites the observer to explore the reliefs, shadows, and the fluidity of the interconnection between static art and conceptual movement.
