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.

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.

Mother of four young men, Lidea M. Hajjar, from the Land of Cedars, a tiny spot on the world map, yet Lebanon is mentioned more than 70 times in the Holy Book. Faith and experiences shaped her multidimensional personality, translated in her ambitions, generosity, thoughtfulness, and passion. Pleasantly calm, she fights for what she desires with the belief that great things don’t come easily. Full- time learner, motivated by her love for everything around her, because she says we are part of the universe and we have plenty of resources. She got her degree in Interior Architecture with honours from the Lebanese American University along with her two elder boys, and another degree in psychology from Lebanese University. She speaks 5 languages and the sixth being a universal one, Art, became her greatest language. She designs her projects, plays guitar, dances, and paints with her body, mind, and soul. And in her Ted talk about Architecture and Tango, Lidea stated that everything is correlated, and every work should be done passionately. For years, her little free time occupation was painting, using different techniques and mediums. But fell lately for the acrylic abstracts, where she finds her hand wandering over the canvas, evoking lots of her emotions, and emanating unlimited expressions, especially in a style of her own she called ‘Limitless Limit’. Her goal is having lovers for her paintings more than clients, she wants her paintings owners to fall for them every day. Self-taught painter, based on the discipline of architecture, the limitations and constraints are her opportunities to design and paint. Eco-friendly artists and engineers are a must for our planet. Rules and norms are her challenge to create. Flexibility is mandatory. Criticism and new approaches are cuddled. She is enrolling in a realism workshop to add skills to her skillset. For Lidea the ''Sky is the Limit''.
