By playing with colors, brush strokes and the use of negative space, my abstract work aims to communicate sensations: calmness, softness, timelessness, warmness… I want people to be surrounded by elements that make them feel happy.
Women play different roles throughout their lives. This collection intends to depict the way some of their roles need to be submerged or made invisible in order to accomplish all of them in a lifetime. Their poses are not intended to be erotic, but they are naked and in relaxed poses to show the acceptance of all their varied roles.
Women's Roles - not for sale.
I stain paper with vegetable dyes, using my hands, in a meditative way that allows me to play freely with shapes and colors. I then use the same dyes to tint white fabric. Because the dyes are natural, the colors become lighter over time, almost disappearing. This evokes the underlying meaning of this work: accept and enjoy periods in life the way they are, since our life experiences - like natural dyes - fade over time.
