«ideology» that determines my painting dwells between
two opposite poles: the
negation of a place – the mundane, distorted space in
which we live and which has
been created by and for humans – and the poetic
dimension of that same place;
tracing back memories and dreams. The juxtaposition
between the ruined urban
landscape and the landscape of dreams is not only a
personal testimony, but also an
act of liberation, realized through the act of painting.
The phase spanning the years 1977–2009 has its origins
in a conscious decision
dating from a time when environmental issues had not yet
become fashionable, as
they are now. It comprises several series of paintings,
Landscapes of Decline, Idolatry of
Nature, Natural Habitat,
Coastal Cities, Labyrinth – Cities, Secret Windows,
Travelling Islands, The Veins of Dreams.
Since 2011 she has been working on a series of works entitled "Citadel",
an imaginary record of cities of the future that alludes to violence,
fear and human loneliness.
At the same time, she has carried on working on mixed-media small paintings.
