Darcilio Lima 1944 - 1991

Darcílio Lima had strong ties to the Brazilian avant-garde of the 1960s and 1970s, especially Ivan Serpa, who mentored the younger artist between 1967 and 1969. Lima’s figurative, densely symbolic work takes a very different direction than many other Brazilian artists at the time, who embraced geometric abstraction. This work gives form to a fabulous hallucinatory universe presided over by a bestiary of hybrids and mutants. In Lima’s work, polymorphism of gender and sexuality rule, while opposites of every kind—human and creature, pleasure and violence, power and submission—are fused. (Excepted from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.)
