GONÇALO IVO: Lamento


Gonçalo Ivo, Lamento, 2011, 240 x 120 cm, oil on linen

Last week at Galeria Anita Schwartz in Rio de Janeiro, Brazilian painter Gonçalo Ivo presented a 3-day exhibition of his Lamento series, comprised of 21 paintings from the past two years. The Event (with a capital E) celebrated the publication by ContraCapa of his new monograph, Oratorio, which features these works and many other major recent paintings, as well as essays by myself and three other writers, with English, French & Portuguese translations. See more about the book HERE

As glorious as these photographs of the installation are, I must say they do not fully capture the sumptuous color and the physical presence of these remarkable paintings. Gonçalo continues to achieve a weightless luminosity combined with a density of surface, making objects that pulsate and breathe with the pure substance of life. They are deeply emotional works that, like a great moaning Delta blues, evoke a sense of loss and longing through magnificent beauty.

Milva - Bella Ciao (Белла чао)




Stamattina mi sono alzato
,
o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,


|: Stamatina mi sono alzato



Eho trovato l'invasor. :|



O partigiano portami via


o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,


|: O partigiano portami via


Che mi sento di morir. :|



E se io muoio da partigiano


o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,


|: E se io muoio da partigiano


Tu mi devi seppellir. :|





Seppellire lassú in montagna,


o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

|: Seppellire lassú in montagna


Sotto l'ombra di un bel fior. :|



E le genti che passeranno


o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,


|: E le genti che passeranno



Ti diranno o che bel fior. :|


E' questo il fiore del partigiano


o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

|: E' questo il fiore del partigino


Morto per la libertá. :|
