“The work of Daniel Melim should be read by the sum of several layers – Layer 1: Gesture. The artist works are produced in an expanded time when the process involves the choice of materials and way of paint. His gesture highlights the intertwining of aspirations with everyday experiences. Layer 2: Overlapping. They are textures that emphasize the movement of “see and see through” (…). Layer 3: Composition. The paintings are composed of a sociopolitical presence (…) this presence is located between the complaint and irony to keep the everyday elements represented in their vibrant colors. ” Ananda Carvalho – Critical and independent curator
