Carbon 12

  • Carbon 12 Unit 37, Alserkal Avenue Dubai UAE (map)


Umbra is the fourth solo show the Portuguese painter Gil Heitor Cortesão has had with Carbon 12. His eerie interior and exterior modernist architectural spaces feel abandoned but full of tension. By manipulating the surfaces of his paintings on plexiglass, Cortesão disrupts the scenes, denying the viewer any distance or perspective and creating a sense of unease.



Carbon 12 was established in 2008, initiating a comprehensive, firmly global, programme of institution-grade artists. Internationally active, Carbon 12 continuously introduces and promotes established and emerging artists into the UAE contemporary art scene.
