Julie Karabenick interviews painter Goncalo Ivo about his work.
Ivon remarks: "Ultimately, I may be trying to reach unattainable colors. To paint it's necessary to leap over the wall of dreams. Of course when you're in the act of painting, many things influence the process. We're always negotiating between our desires and reality. Intuition guides me. I don't rationalize while I paint. I simply breathe and move ahead. What enchants me is the act itself, the being there and making something that reflects my own way of experiencing the world."
