Black and white woodcut prints depict vignettes of life in Northeastern Brazil. The first, 'Country Courtship,' depicts a couple dallying in a hidden countryside bower in the shade of a cashew tree. Birds serenade them and a lizard watches curiously. Suggesting the Garden of Eden, a serpent slithers up the tree trunk.
The second, 'The Migrants,' shows a family of farm workers on their way to the next job. Carrying his hoe, the father steadies the bundle of belongings his wife balances on her head. Three children catch a ride on the family's horse beneath the tropical sun.
'Dance on the Farm,' the third print, depicts couples dancing to the music of a trio on a weekend in rural Brazil.
Ivan Borges, transfers the images to white ceramic tiles and frames all three in a single composition.
Titled "Namoro do Matuto," "Os Retirantes," and "Forró na Fazenda" in Portuguese.
