The artist:

“I thought about the impact of right and wrong, and how our relationships are built from them. I gave our ability to relate to our actions a simple thought. Through language and its definitions. I believe that right isn’t a direction. Maybe right isn’t right anyway. Probably was just the acceptance of an error.

The verb to try brought me perspective. Try - a verb that induces ambiguity. Put effort on execution, insistence, persistence in face of attempts. Try - is also desire, will, uprise. Tempting.

Trying is action and reaction.

Unpublished canvas in the compositions shows that I keep trying new ways.

“Eu não sei!” (I don’t know!) - that phrase seeks a position of comfort from our limitations. Neon is a noble light. The light symbolically represents wisdom, knowledge, and solution."

The painting has a subtle capacity to transport us to other dimensions. The series “Sou vista”, by Lese Pierre Lima, possesses exactly this wonderful potential of bringing up permanent inquiries to the viewer. The images invite an view of bodies that look like landscapes. Or is it the opposite? Doesn’t matter. The great question that the works bring up is in discussing the painting itself and the ways in which it mimics, represents and interprets the world known to us to conduct to reflections about what we are and how we understand what the world is like. The artist, that found out about his dyslexia at 27 years old, thanks to a redator that realized that he had difficulty with letters and numbers, got to know more about it by bringing the subject to therapy and reading books. Visual artist, talks in his series about interpersonal relationships, giving the subject very different approaches and points of view.

The book "90 Oras" was written using the Ramos alphabet, produced by its creator between 2011 and 2013. Consisting of 90 words with 3 letters each, the project isn't trying to find a code based on the Latin alphabet or doing a re-reading of typographical images known as letters. It's about having a safe space in which exists an unknown that only loses its validation when it's known. It feeds exactly from this paradox.

Each word is a soundless form established alongside the experience of its creator in relation to them.

So, there arise visual poems in which the translation of the word is represented graphically and demands the discovery of letters in Ramos, in a process that rescues alphabetization.

This way, the image does not link to a sound, therefore, not being a word inside traditional writing. The challenge is lyrically established.

by himself

As a child, school was a nightmare. There were peaks of knowing a lot and other moments of forgetting everything. Reading made me nauseous. It was very difficult.

The first book I read was by Fernando Pessoa. Poems, very fine book. On the recommendation of my teacher in 4th grade. She enjoyed listening to me explaining the poem. And she graded me for it.
I have a taste for study, and I have developed a way of separating my subjects. A didactic taxonomy.

I believe that everything that enters my memory becomes a hybrid. I'm a hybrid breeder.

Therapy helped to understand a good part of what I felt. And it was a new phase for me. A phase that I enjoyed understanding/discovering myself.

This relationship with dyslexia is a story of insistence and repetition.

Complicated synthesize.
