Luís Lázaro Matos at Bastide Projects


Hockney's pools had a sort of nostalgia without yellow, but a bleaching sun and chemical blue stripped it to bone, something almost caustic, which becomes the threat of sharkbite here. That Stranger by the Lake vibe, something so pure clean with an undercurrent, predators in the water, eels under clothes, all the things a beach provides. Sort of like a gym sock.
