On 2012 London lived one of their most celebrated events, hosting the XXX edition of the modern Olympic Games.
I was lucky enough to be there performing in the opening ceremony as an actress of the pandemonium bit.
All the experiences that I lived during the rehearsals, the ceremony in itself and the olympic games times inspired this series of works.
This harmony is what inspired this series of paintings. In them I use a combination of abstract and gesture approach with a detailed and ancient oil painting techniques. I hope you enjoy the result as much as I do.
During May 2014 I went to visit Ireland with my parents. It was wonderful, so green and full of natural life. We could see some gulls in Dublin, by the river, like the one on the left. The background represent the Liffey, at its pass through the city.
In our pass by the lovely town of Adare, an Heritage Town, we had our lunch in the park in front of the Tourist Centre. There a lot of crows gathered around us trying to get some breadcrumbs out of us. They were lovely and we ended up giving them our spare food.
The language of every community is their identity but, sometimes, it could be also an obstacle for the understandings of neighbours. In these occasions, there is nothing better than the Art, the universal language to communicate our desires, feelings and actions. Through my paintings draw the eyes to what we could considered bizarre, peculiar. The window is open to stop the glaze, and think, meditate. And with a simple look, we establish the prized communication between two people, two worlds, two minds, which are so different, and at the same time so similar.
