An exhibition of paintings and prints which aim to illustrate the poetry of Fernando Pessoa writing as Alberto Caeiro. Caeiro [one of the many inventions or heteronyms developed by Pessoa - each having separate personality and literary style]was a unique creation; a non-thinker, a believer in the redundancy of reasoning, and a proponent of the desire not to think, merely to look and see. The exhibition invites the viewer to approach the works using the Caeiro poems as a manual, or set of instructions as a key to any meaning that the work may hold.
