PETROS by Lúcia Antunes | Fragments of Earth’s crust and Scientific Illustration

PETROS, by Lúcia Antunes
from 24th of November to 3rd of December 2021
Rua de Ponta Delgada, 26 A, Lisbon

The starting point for this work are fragments of the Earth’s crust.
It is a field notebook that studies several rocks (petrvs in Latin) that can be found in Portugal’s territory.
The aim is to know the shapes, proportions, and colors of the objects under study, using both drawing and written annotations. The notebook is a first approximation to these rocks, an important moment in the process of creating a scientific illustration.

FAULT / FALHA is a creative project that explores the fragmentation and discontinuity of space, discourse, culture, and community – everywhere in the world.
We invited five distinguished artists to interpret and explore this theme.
Their work will be exhibited at our gallery in Lisbon between November 2021 and February 2022.
