In Santiago Ribeiro´s paintings we are surprised to meet a "wondrous (new) world" - or perhaps not - wich he recreates, using his small figures (male and female) in a constant, restless search, where color balance is the key.
When looking at his paintings, one feels puzzled struck by mixed feelings of duality."
