An expression of the work of visual Jorge Santos and his privileged experience of nature, Flower Ornament debuts at the Fundação Ricardo do Espírito Santo’s Museu de Artes Decorativas Portuguesas and is part of the side programme of ARCOlisboa 2017. Come to open it on may 11th at 6.30pm or visit it until june 30th (from 10am 10a5pm, wednesday to monday, at Largo das Portas do Sol 2).

Flower Ornament is an instalation gathering drawings of flower compositions made by using a printmaking technique called “blind or inkless printing”, that prints by stamping/pressing a concavous hard surface onto paper. Jorge Santos’ creations will be on display at the museum’s temporary exhibition room, in a dialogue between the decorative arts (which set the venue’s reputation) and contemporary art (where the artist is inscribed).
