Statement

As they are repeated, living on a sort of planned autonomy, the appearance of an alphabet of «signs» gains relevance in the work of João Gomes Gago. Through his drawing, engraving, painting or performance, a kind of inherent "energy" is evoked, from the tensions created between body and drawing. An affinity between birth and death resonates, where the effects caused by the whole process of conceiving the "stain" are inscribed in a prevailing register, which inhabits the paper.
