After studying painting with Ivan Serpa, one of the most important proponents of Neoconcretismo, Felix began as a drawer in the 1980s. Soon, though, sculpture became his most important means of expression. He processes influences from the Brazilian avant-garde as well as from American Minimal and Land Art. In his works, nature is constrained and strengthened by cultural objects and sculptural matter, whose imminent transubstantiation the artist explores. His interest turns to the interiority of things and to the relations between equilibrium and instability in the construction of an architectural space in which his works are installed. The human body, word and language, poetry and cartography acquire, in their practice, a plastic dimension, revealing its mythical or symbolic aspects.
Rio de Janeiro, 1954
