Since 2001, Luiz Ernesto has developed a work in fiberglass, polyester resin and photography. About this work, critic Paulo Sérgio Duarte, in a text entitled “The Loneliness of the things calm,” he wrote: “What are these jobs Luiz Ernesto? They aren’t canvas, or painting, at least not in the conventional sense. However they resemble, not in the strict way, the sense of the painting for what in English is called shape. In its manufacturing procedures comply with the sculpture. Have a mold and there the artist lays his fiber sheets, his solvents and his pictures and words…

Despite its size, the real theme of the paintings is the nostalgia of a world in miniature, without violence or nervousness where things calm could enjoy their solitude. “
