I recently came across the work of Sérgio Pimenta and thought “it has been a while since I had featured an artist”. The color blocking of these pieces is what caught my attention. There is color blocking but at the same time there are organic qualities of the paint flowing towards gravity. I couldn’t help but imagine swimming pools with the first few images. The geometric lines are given depth with gradients working to provide levels and dimension. Every time I feature art I always ask myself if I could see it in a mid century setting and these pieces certainly passed the test.
