UNITED PHOTO PRESS RETRO | SPECTIVE 28 YEARS 1990.2018 + NEW BOOK
BY Carlos Sousa | 22-May-2018
We have hereby presented the RETROSPECTIVE OF 28 YEARS 1990 | 2018 of UNITED PHOTO PRESS that will inaugurate an international exhibition and a new book in August in the City of Setúbal in Portugal.
I begin by thanking our members throughout the world and the future members and guests who participated in our international exhibitions of photography, painting, sculpture, installation, etc ..., our thanks and availability, imagination and interest in the United Photo Press over these 28 years.
Our special thanks go to The American Institute of Arts and the University of Queensland in Australia for their recognition in our contribution to the spread of contemporary art in the world.
The work of today is the certainty of tomorrow, because we are all artistically together without distinction of race, color or sex, which stimulates our dream in inspiration of feeling new formulas, new techniques, new materials, so that we grow together ...
One was renewed, progressively more active and innovative. An exercise of exchanges, sharing and complicity. Characters that recreate games of soul, colors of experiences, enchanted forms, dressed in lines or traces. Representation in multi-disciplinary spaces, parade of emotions, sensualities and transparencies. Proposals from the conventional to new trends, sensitivities, ruptures and cleavages. Projects that have learned to have a voice at a crossroads of aesthetic-plastic concepts. Travel shared between the eyes and the mind, the hold of the breath when you feel who is watching us.
In attention, curiosity and interest in the sublime natural task of Creation.
Let's say, as a complement, an exercise in which, in the difference of the result, the effort, the time of investigation, and the anonymous but responsible humility of the one who simply creates because he can not close ideas and ideals in his chest are not visible.
From their interchange results in the renewal necessary, continually upward and free, in a flight, in the imagination of time, in solitude and recollection, in an extreme care that is never extinguished, but is renewed in each new play, new play, new project.
It is in this way that we cross in the direction of the future, diverse lines but not dispersed of the themes to the convictions in a colored mixture, where feelings and emotions move, construct and complement, fruit of the individual artistic expression.
Selection is open to photography,painting, video art and sculpture/installation. Artists, architects, photographers and video makers are invited to submit their works and projects by e-mail.
Participation requires an entry fee only for selected artworks. Information to take part in the selection, e-mail:
