The Geological Series is a collection of abstract compositions that explore the relationship between material and creativity. The works feature organic, fluid shapes inspired by geological wonders, such as volcanic eruptions and impact craters. The dreamy, otherworldly quality of the pieces is achieved through the use of intense shades of blue, black, and gold, created by the interplay of ink, wax, and paraffin.
The abstract forms in these works invite viewers to recognize patterns and familiar shapes within the chaos. The formless paint and vivid concentration of color serve to increase our appreciation for the aesthetics. The work invites viewers to embrace the formless, bask in the abstract, and experience the knowledge within the intangible. It is a celebration of the power of art to reveal the beauty and mystery of the abstraction.
The "Wax Mask" work is a powerful and personal expression of the artist's journey. The use of wax, both in the abstract paintings and as a medium applied directly to the face, serves as a symbol of societal expectations and the transformative power of art. The pain and embarrassment experienced through the act of waxing, as well as the journey of self-discovery and growth, are masterfully captured in this work. Overall, "Wax Mask" is a thought-provoking and impactful expression of the beauty expectations that are put upon women.
"Minerals" is a captivating series where the artist explores the unique visual interplay between metallic acrylic painting and heat, resulting in a collection of expressive abstract compositions. Each piece showcases the dynamic relationship between the flaring hues in the paint under intense heat application, resulting in a truly mesmerizing visual experience.
As Mario Pedrosa once said, "Art is the experimental exercise of freedom". The series "Diários" exemplifies this idea, bringing together a dynamic interplay of various materials such as wax, acrylic paint, glitter, and heat. The combination of these materials produces expressive and captivating compositions that showcase the artist's experimentation with the limits of creative freedom. Each piece in the series is a unique and thought-provoking exploration of the possibilities of artistic expression, inviting the viewer to join in the experimental exercise of freedom.
