Brazilian artist Antonio Malta Campos seems to apply jamming principles to the elaboration of his unpredictable but close-fitting paintings. In a video made of sequences that show a visual account of his creative process, we see him beginning a painting with a single pattern that grows over time into a complex interweaving of visual strata.
We witness how the colour layers start defining organic forms, how transparencies suggest spectral shapes and cubist formations of light and shadow shine out.
