“Shout: - Don't run away from me Benina shadow!

She, her eyes on me with a soft look

as if to say that already It can't be,

Run away from me again. And I was shouting: ─ Dina…,

before you say mene, I wake up, and I see

that not even a brief mistake can I have.”


Luís de Camões, Sonnet to Dinamene.


José de Guimarães, one of the exponents of contemporary Portuguese art and our most international artist manages to surprise us with each of his works. The screen printing “Camões e Dinamene”, a special edition on custom-made paper. hand, give it continuity to the universe of fragmentation combined with a very vivid chromaticism in contrasts of primary colors, emblematic of its expression. On the navy blue background, evocative of the ocean that lost and mythologized Dinamene, the shadows of the poet and his beloved are outlined, pure silhouettes, more souls than bodies, which numerology accentuates, the three symbolizing the manifestation divine unity and unity. Transcorporeal essences and imbued with all the magical flowering of life, realities and mirages, fantasies, dreams that are also from nature. Only The talent of an exceptional artist with a path that has followed and glossed the metamorphoses of life achieves the miracle of this mystical and magical union of opposites that complement and mutually illuminate each other.
