The  true landscape  of discovery consists  not in seeking new landscapes,  and Yes to have new eyes.

 Marcel  Proust


Unexpected  landscapes, inaugurates  the Ocupart Chiado space.  The project Ocupart – Art in  Unlikely Spaces, aims to promote,  publicize and streamline the contemporary  art in Portugal, through the development of  cultural projects in non-conventional spaces. In  the present initiative to gather in collective exposure  works which translate varied reactions to visual stimuli of  the world that surrounds us and how this can be interpreted  and represented.


Artistic  creations that  can be related to  the concept of landscape  approaches, is in the strand  of natural landscape free of human  intervention, whether in the sense of  humanized landscape that increasingly associates  to the urban landscape, where the intervention of  a man is increasing and almost everything is the fruit  of processing by human hand. The visual record that it follows  leads to different ways of understanding the world. This individual  interpretation reaches new dimension in the expression of the artist where  the reflection of the critical eye and creativity is reflected in the creation  of new unexpected landscapes.


Reflexes  of the real  impressions diversified  that are fixed under the  forms in colors, in dream designed,  in various brackets and with recourse  to various techniques. Photograph of the  truth that suggests to the virtual world of  fantasy art media and the new technologies, the  landscape gains new dimension between the figurative  and abstract, between the real and the fictional.


Being  unexpected  landscapes, of  subjectivity seductive,  that provoke us and suggest  us other prospects for exploring  the exterior and the own tradition  of the genus Dzpaisagemdz in the world  of the visual arts.
