Working off images from ’60s interior design magazines, Cortesão paints layers of paint onto Plexiglas and presents the reverse side of the work when he exhibits them, creating a muted, dream-like quality that suggests the decline of the utopian promises of the Modernist era. “I want to get the viewer to feel that they’re at a distance, to enter these spaces as if they’re in hypnosis,” he has said. Cortesão establishes a sense of unease in his paintings by pointing to the disintegration of these environments; artworks peel off walls or natural elements overrun interior spaces. “That which was probably futurist at that time, now seems retro-futurist or even just obsolete,” he says. Portuguese, b. 1967, Lisbon, Portugal, based in Lisbon, Portugal
