Description

Vasconcelos elevates what was seen as artisanal work to a fine art level, challenging presupposed notions of what art can and cannot be. This is all done with a certain humour and lightless, forcing us to see art as intrinsically linked with everyday life and what we see around us. The gecko itself is an ordinary animal which becomes embellished by Vasconcelos' technique, encouraging us to see the world around us differently.
