In Chaque maison est une saison, Vieira experiments with a new approach to space of the space in the painting, primordial theme of all his work: in the center, a square the center, a square window pierces the plane of the canvas towards a blue sky space. This opening relegates on the sides two structures made up of fine parallel streaks lengthened and rhythmic, very personal to the artist. These last ones are the relics of the grids of the Fifties (cf. Music without title, n°23 of our catalog). That of right-hand side, is partially veiled by a large band painted of a blue of ether. The one on the left, striated in red of embers, is occulted partially by whites. The artist claims the psychological and strictly personal effect of the colors that she chooses. For Vieira, red embodies winter, home, intimacy. While the blues suggest without question the immensities of the ether. In Every House is a Season, the two essential colors, relegated to their respective spaces their respective spaces (and it is precisely the explanation of the title) are not in chromatic chromatic contradiction but in concertante partition. We can quote Vieira's poetic testament: I bequeath to my friends A cerulean blue to fly high A cobalt blue for happiness An ultramarine blue to stimulate the spirit A vermillion to make the blood flow happily ATTENTION: NO LIVE FOR THIS LOT.
