Henrique Oliveira: Strange Spaces

It’s every so often that I come across a sculptor whose work gives me a guteral reaction. I have to wonder why it is that I’m somewhat uncomfortable visualizing myself in some of Henrique Oliveira’s spaces. Is it that the space itself looks like it’s going to swallow me up or that it resembles subject matter that I’m not comfortable walking into to begin with. Whatever the reason, I’m still thinking about it and wishing I could experience it in person, for I’m sure that the mere experience is much more intense than a picture.
