As one of Brazil’s foremost contemporary artists, Luiz Braga explores that which is called ‘opaque’, among the varied methods used to construct a photographic image. While focusing on the physical and human subjects provided by the North-eastern Brazilian region, Braga employs great technical skill in capturing light and colour in direct reference to the geometric and constructive tradition present in the country since the mid 1950's. The photographs become ‘opaque’ as both form and content act to complicate the system of referents from which a picture is formed. With great international exposure and recognition, Braga’s latest exhibitions include the 53rd Venice Biennale; the Modern Art Institute of Valencia, Spain; the Museum of Modern Art in Brazil as well as Photoquai, the Contemporary Photography Biennale in Paris, France. He has shown extensively world-wide and across Brazil in the 3rd International Photography Biennale in Curitiba, Brazil; in the prestigious Galeria Leme in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and at the V Liège international Biennale of Art and Photography in Liège, Belgium. Braga makes his Canadian debut with the exhibition Entre-Medios at the Buschlen Mowatt Gallery.
