series statement

Silhouette J.P. Goncalves
Gonçalves’ love of architectural design is a strong component in his shadow art pieces where he harnesses light into shadows, created by deliberately placed and cut wood pieces, as he sculpts these fascinating pieces of art. Each piece loses its subject completely if the light source is removed. The image is only revealed in the shadows that have been created.
