About Endless:

The art of Pedro Cabral Santo may be perceived as a gift, something which offers itself unrestrictedly to the world; it expresses the hope for change and a search for a better world where, according to the modernist project, art would be considered one of the most important dimensions of life.

Things are not quite what they seem to be; to meditate on the work of Pedro Cabral Santo requires adopting a different point of view. Let us imagine a cube, a well-known geometric figure; when we look at it, we discover that it is impossible to see more than three of its facets at the same time, although the figure is composed of six facets. Therefore, we may extract the following conclusion: there is no such thing as omniscience or absolute knowledge. In this sense, art must be perceived and interpreted beyond the obvious, and each observer may add his own ideas and counter-ideas to it.
