I recently had the pleasure of meeting Daniel Melim and seeing his amazing acrylic paintings on a transparent acrylic membrane. The intense blue contrasting against rich vibrant colours becomes clear when realizing that it is actually a painting, of a painting. Melim first paints on fabrics and places them in ‘contact with nature: hills and irregular volumes of stamped cloths that seem to dance in the wind under a blue sky that resembles the Summer clear sky’.
