Interview: Galdino Neto
Luca Curci
talks with Galdino Neto during THE EXTENDED BODY 2020 at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space.

Galdino Neto was best known for his work as a practicing physician in Neonatology. Before the art world, born in Rio de Janeiro, Galdino grew up in Brazil. However, living in the United States for almost all his adult life and capturing images that speak not only to a culture from which he has raised, but to a world who has been faced. Pudor and desire, thrift and turbulence, sensuality and holiness. Even though at times they seem antagonistic, these are, in fact, nuances of the human essence and of Galdino Neto’s photographs. With excellent control of light and shadow, the artist brings out strong and sensual characters. Fragile and sensitive, works that mix the realism of photographic modernity with the classic features of paintings by Tenebrist artists. His images exalt the body and the human psyche from compositions that lead to reflect on the meaning of life, death, sex and equality. Images from the brutality of darker side of the humanity to the beauty and nobility of the Human spirit.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Galdino Neto –
Art is the visual expression of your emotions past, present or future. A creation of a language in different forms of images. A visual message full of beauty but without words.

LC – What are you currently working on?
GN –
Creating digital montages with my own photography. Using the montage of different images to tell a more complete and meaningful story.

To live with my mind and eyes open to the world around us. Including the eye on my emotions and imagination.

The source of images for my montages is my own photography. The process started on the photo shoot. In the choice of a subject and on my imagination almost with no boundaries. It will ignites the production process. Finally, the manipulation of images by using the digital tools. I place images like a traditional collage. However, it is done digitally, creating a digital montage.
