JARI JÄRNSTRÖM Jari Järnström (b. 1960) is a visual artists, a painter. He has graduated with Master of Fine Arts from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts 2003. He lives and works in Helsinki, Finland. Järnström starts his work by painting the background with acrylic colors in an abstract expressionist way using the style of Action Painting, where the paint can run and spread freely. Action Painting is a style of painting which started in about 1950s and was predominant style until the 1960s. It is often connected to the Abstract Expressionism. Instead of adding the paint onto the canvas with careful brush strokes, in Action Painting the paint is splashed and added spontaneously in various ways. After the background is done, the work continues with oil colors. This is the point when especially the influences from Neo-figurative art arises. The Figurative art is based on representational art and therefore based on representation of the objects and humans. The most central topics for Järnström's paintings have for long been people, particularly man. www.kuvataiteilijamatrikkeli.fi/fi/taiteilijat/1834 jari.jarnstrom@welho.com

Jari Järnström (1960) é artista plástico. Concluiu o mestrado em Belas Artes em 2003, na Academia Finlandesa de Belas Artes. Ele vive e trabalha em Helsinque, na Finlândia. Järnström inicia seu processo criativo pintando a superfície com tintas acrílicas, de maneira expressionista abstrata, utilizando o estilo Action Painting, no qual a tinta pode se movimentar e se espalhar livremente. Action Painting é um estilo de pintura que teve seu início por volta dos anos 1950, e seu auge deu-se até os anos 1960. Este estilo é frequentemente relacionado ao Expressionismo Abstrato. Ao invés de trabalhar a tinta em tela com pinceladas cuidadosas, no estilo Action Painting a tinta é espirrada e adicionada espontaneamente de várias maneiras. Depois que a superfície está feita, o processo continua com tintas a óleo. Este é o momento em que surgem especialmente as influências da Arte Neo-Figurativa. A Arte Figurativa é baseada na Arte Representativa e, portanto, é baseada na representação de objetos e de seres humanos. Os temas centrais das pinturas de Järnström têm sido há muito tempo as pessoas, principalmente o homem.

KAJ STENVALL www.kajstenvall.com kaj.stenvall@kajstenvall.com Since late 80’s Kaj Stenvall has been one of the most important and probably the most beloved contemporary artist in Finland. His exhibitions are constantly hits in Finnish art scene and his paintings are tempting to the galleries not only established art lovers but also people who usually despise contemporary art. His prominent main figure, a duck symbol remotely resembling Disney’s ducks, comments financial crisis and global economical turmoil as well as several religious issues which have been essential in Stenvall’s art since 1980’s.

Vain yksi yritys???!!! / Only One Shot???!!! 70 x 90 cm Oil on canvas 2014 Desde o final dos anos 1980 Kaj Stenvall tem sido um dos mais importantes e, provavelmente, o mais amado artista contemporâneo na Finlândia. Suas exposições são constantemente grandes sucessos na cena artística finlandesa, e suas pinturas são opções tentadoras para as galerias, e também não somente para os amantes da arte, como para as pessoas que normalmente desprezam a arte contemporânea. Sua figura mais proeminente, um pato que possui uma remota semelhança com os patos da Disney, comenta a crise financeira e a turbulência econômica global, assim como várias questões religiosas, as quais têm sido essenciais na arte de Stenvall desde os anos 1980.

LENA NYSTRÖM SOLBERG lenanystromsolberg@gmail.com www.lenanystromsolberg.se

I’m an artist from Stockholm, Sweden. Educated in Gothenburg and Oslo, Norway. I have participated in several exhibitions in Sweden and abroad. I paint mostly in oil, but I also use watercolor and drawing. Through my images I communicate my inner thoughts. The natural meets the abstract, and the light trickles through a curtain of darkness. I work with layers of paint in order to create various shades of lightness and darkness, to communicate a certain feeling to the observer. “In every moment there’s something worth keeping. Sometimes it is obvious, sometimes we need to make an effort to look past things that obscure our vision.”

Across the world 120 x 120 cm


Kick it to the moon 120 x 120 cm

Eu sou uma artista de Estocolmo, na Suécia, com formação em Gotemburgo (também na Suécia) e em Oslo, na Noruega. Tenho participado de várias exposições na Suécia e no exterior. Eu utilizo principalmente tinta a óleo, mas eu também trabalho com aquarela e desenho. Através das minhas imagens eu comunico meus pensamentos mais profundos. O natural se encontra com o abstrato, e a luz escoa através de uma cortina de escuridão. Eu trabalho com camadas de tinta com o objetivo de criar vários tons de claridade e escuridão, no intuito de comunicar um determinado sentimento ao observador. "Em cada momento há coisas que valem a pena manter. Às vezes é óbvio, outras vezes precisamos fazer o esforço de atentar para as coisas do passado que obscurecem a nossa visão”.

BO ALSTRÖM boalstrom@hotmail.com Bo Alström is a history painter, a uniquely modern representative of an age-old tradition. At the same time, he is a philosophical and profoundly intuitive modern artist. He empathizes with the experiences of people in distant times and places while maintaining a highly-calibrated sensitivity to color, form, and composition. Alström’s curiosity about human character and motivation, about past events, and about the world in which he lives finds expression in exhilerating images where abstraction and representation and description and imagination collide, interact, and harmonize.

22


Bo Alström pinta a história; é um representante singular, na modernidade, de uma antiga tradição. Ao mesmo tempo, ele é um artista moderno com conteúdo filosófico e profundamente intuitivo. Ele tem simpatia com as experiências de pessoas oriundas de tempos e lugares distantes, mantendo sempre uma sensibilidade apurada em relação à cor, à forma e à composição. A curiosidade de Alström sobre a personalidade e a motivação do ser humano, sobre acontecimentos passados, e sobre o mundo em que vive, encontra expressão em imagens estimulantes nas quais a abstração, a representação, a descrição e a imaginação colidem, interagem e harmonizam.

CALINA PANDELE YTTREDAL pandele@online.no www.calinayttredal.com The interaction between light, colour and space is a special field in Calina Pandele Yttredal`s art and in her books. Her paintings, lighting sculptures and public decorations involve multiple meanings, as she investigates connections between cycles in nature and the cycle of life, the close and the distant, the microcosm and macrocosm. Yttredal, who has an extensive classical art background from an early age, masters different materials and techniques, both traditional and new technologies. To convey the idea of transformation and parallel realities, she has developed a technique with iridescent and transparent media in many layers. The colours on the work`s surface interacts with the surrounding light and change character . They may also change according to the viewer's position. Her art has been shown in solo and group exhibitions, in Oslo and other towns in Norway, where she lives and works. Also abroad, among others in New York, Miami, Seattle, Paris, Marseille, Rome, Helsinki, Bucharest. Yttredal has received prizes and awards, among others, Art and Business Award for her public decoration with light at Paleet Karl Johan, in the heart of Oslo. Another major public decoration she has been entrusted, was on the occasion of national commemoration of the Norwegian cultural personality Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson. Yttredal`s work has been acquired by public institutions. She gives lectures based on her books and has participated in several TV shows.

A interação entre luz, cor e espaço é um território especial na arte de Calina Pandele Yttredal, bem como nos seus livros. Suas pinturas, esculturas iluminadas e decorações públicas envolvem múltiplos significados, visto que ela investiga conexões entre os ciclos na natureza e o ciclo da vida, o próximo e o distante, o microcosmo e o macrocosmo. Yttredal, que tem uma extensa experiência na arte clássica desde cedo, domina diferentes materiais e técnicas, tanto tradicionais quanto no âmbito das novas tecnologias. Para transmitir a idéia de transformação e de realidades paralelas, ela desenvolveu uma técnica com materiais iridescentes e transparentes em muitas camadas. As cores na superfície da obra interagem com a luz ambiente e tem suas características alteradas. As cores também podem mudar de acordo a posição do espectador. Sua arte tem sido apresentada em exposições individuais e colectivas, em Oslo e em outras cidades da Noruega, onde vive e trabalha. Seus trabalhos tem sido apresentados também no exterior, em cidades como Nova Iorque, Miami, Seattle, Paris, Marselha, Roma, Helsinque, Bucareste, entre outras. Yttredal recebeu diferentes prêmios e distinções, tais como o Art and Business Award pela sua decoração pública com luz em Paleet Karl Johan, no coração de Oslo. Outra importante decoração pública foi a ela confiada, por ocasião da comemoração nacional em torno da personalidade cultural norueguesa Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson. O trabalho de Yttredal tem sido adquirido por instituições públicas. Ela dá palestras com base em seus livros e tem participado de vários programas de TV.

AMIR ZAINORIN www.amirzainorin.dk amirszainorin@gmail.com Amir Zainorin is a multi disciplinary Malaysian artist based in Copenhagen Denmark. His work is wide range in terms of medium and content from global capital, the art world, celebrity culture, inclusion/exclusion, politics and post-colonialism. His installation work involved things from found objects or things that he collected from the street. His performance work includes durational performance, social interaction and text in public spaces. He draws on a range of issues regarding the politics of immigration, the language that has come to define the “other” and Malaysian cultural tradition. Through his work a participatory dialogue forms between the artist and his audience, which leads to a rupturing of conventional notions of subject formation and exclusionary politics. Amir’s work are collected by private art collectors and museums among other The National Art Gallery Malaysia, The National Portrait Gallery Malaysia and The Immigrant Museum Denmark. This paper–cutouts series of Amir Zainorin’s ’Who’s Who’ - football players series’ addresses issue on identity. The images from the cut outs are world famous footballers taken from the intenet. They are very simple and minimal in execution where the depth of positive and negative space are interplayed with one another. This interactive work invite the audience to guess who is the person behind the work. This was made possible because of the faceless image due to the cut-outs made by Amir. At the same time the audience will be able able to see reflections of themselves due to the mirror that have been placed behind the image.

Who’s who I – the footbal players series 29 x 21 cm Papercuts and inkjet print 2014


Who’s who II – the footbal players series 29 x 21 cm Papercuts and inkjet print 2014 Amir Zainorin é um artista multidisciplinar. Nasceu na Malásia mas vive na cidade de Copenhague, na Dinamarca. Seu trabalho tem um amplo alcance, abrangendo meios e conteúdos relacionados ao capital global, ao mundo das celebridades, inclusão/exclusão, política e pós-colonialismo. Suas instalações são compostas por objetos encontrados e coletados nas ruas. Seus trabalhos em performance incluem performances contínuas, interações sociais e leitura de textos em espaços públicos. Suas pinturas tratam de uma série de questões, tais como as políticas de imigração, a linguagem utilizada para definir o que é o "outro", e a cultura tradicional da Malásia. Através dos seus trabalhos, é estabelecido um diálogo participativo entre o artista e o público, que conduz a uma ruptura das noções convencionais da formação do sujeito e das políticas excludentes. Os trabalhos de Amir fazem parte de coleções privadas e de coleções de museus, tais como The National Art Gallery Malaysia, The National Portrait Gallery Malaysia e The Immigrant Museum Denmark. Esta série de fotografias recortadas de Amir Zainorin, intitulada "Who is Who - football player series" (Quem é quem - série jogadores de futebol) aborda questões ligadas à identidade. As imagens recortadas são de jogadores de futebol conhecidos mundialmente, retiradas da internet. A execução é simples e minimalista, na qual os espaços preenchidos e os espaços a preencher interagem um com o outro. Este trabalho interativo convida o público a adivinhar quem é a pessoa por trás da obra. Tal interação é possível devido aos recortes feitos por Amir, que deixa a imagem sem rosto. Ao mesmo tempo, o público poderá ver o reflexo de si na obra, devido ao espelho que é colocado por trás da imagem. 29

CESAR COELHO GOMES www.cesarcoelho.com.br coelhogomes.cesar@gmail.com I use the painting as a field, as an ambience, to let the constant relationship between what I consciously capture from the world and what springs from my unconscious flow. I hope, as a result, to ask questions, to express my astonishment and my delight and, if possible, to produce beauty. The human figure has always been a fertile ground for me to explore the diversity of life, in which each face is a mystery, a possible reflection of myself. And these faces are present in a football match. There is anger, fear, anxiety, joy, pleasure, frustration. In the ‘green arena’ players of all ethnic groups, with unique physical types, temperaments and life stories, update and amplify, ‘in the heat of the fight’, the universal and perennial human feelings. The heart beating faster to take the field, the pleasure of a great assist, the expectation of the crowd carried on the shoulders, or feet, the crowning glory of a goal or the inexpressible frustration of a defeat. That is, today, the privileged field of my pictorial research.

Foi! 90 x 140 cm Técnica mista, acrílica e óleo sobre tela 2014 Uso a pintura como o campo, o meio, para deixar fluir a relação constante entre o que capto conscientemente do mundo e o que jorra de meu inconsciente. Espero a partir daí colocar questões, exprimir meu espanto e encantamento e, se possível, produzir beleza. A figura humana sempre foi para mim material fértil para explorar a diversidade da vida, sendo cada rosto um mistério, um possível espelho de mim mesmo. E todas as faces estão presentes em uma partida de futebol. Ali estão a fúria, o medo, a ansiedade, o júbilo, o gozo, a frustação. Na ´verde arena´ jogadores de todas as etnias, com tipos físicos, temperamentos e histórias de vida singulares atualizam e amplificam, no calor da disputa, os sentimentos universais e perenes do ser humano. O coração acelerado ao entrar em campo, o prazer de um passe bem dado, a expectativa da torcida carregada nos ombros, ou nos pés, a glória máxima de um gol ou a frustração inexprimível de uma derrota. É esse, hoje, o campo privilegiado de minha pesquisa pictórica. 37

EDA MIRANDA edamir@globo.com Eda Miranda, lives and work in Niter贸i, R. Janeiro, Brazil. My art works are reflections on the biomedical field, which refer to the body and, in some moments, with subtle erotic connotations. It is a work which leads us to walk into the inner landscape of the body. The creative process begins with the predominance of very free emotions, which makes use of stains, one moment with dense materials, the next with watery paints. In the following phase, icons and symbols inherent in biology are introduced, simulating organs, organic defense mechanisms. My paintings lie in the boundary between abstraction and figuration. From this moment on, we find ourselves faced with the ambiguity of a painting which is simultaneously abstract and figurative, a new perspective for a twice as rich experience is open, once it is processed in the specific and limited universe of painting, and, at the same time, it leads us to reflect on the richness of the human being, with all its magic and beauty.

Eda Miranda, vive e trabalha em Niterói, R. Janeiro, Brasil. Meus trabalhos são reflexões no campo biomédico, que aludem ao corpo e em alguns momentos, com conotações eróticas sutis. É um trabalho que nos leva a caminhar na paisagem interior do corpo. O processo criativo tem início com o predomínio do emocional muito livre, onde utiliza manchas, ora com matéria, ora aquareladas. Em uma fase seguinte, são introduzidos ícones e símbolos inerentes à biologia, simulando órgãos, mecanismos orgânicos de defesa. Pinturas que se situam no limiar entre abstração e figuração. A partir desse momento, em que nos percebemos diante da ambiguidade de uma pintura que se quer simultaneamente abstrata e figurativa, abre-se uma nova perspectiva para uma experiência duplamente rica, já que se processa no universo particular e limitado da pintura, e ao mesmo tempo nos leva a refletir sobre a riqueza do ser humano, com toda a sua magia e beleza.

CARMEN THOMPSON The artist Carmen Thompson lives in Rio de Janeiro where she investigates a variety of materials for the production of masks, sculptures, paintings, watercolors and drawings. Since 2008, she has experimented with etching, where she interferes subtly in the process of printing and through the use of color, in search for an alchemic opulence. Born in Minas Gerais, by the time she was 10 she was already living in Rio de Janeiro and had started her classical ballet studies. Later she has attended modern and contemporary dance courses. The artist arms herself with her dancing experience as an instrument of her action, in the space and on the paper. She opens the eye to possibility, unique and unexpected, at the same time continuous like the movement and poetic like a drawing. For this Set/2014 exhibition in New York, the artist will show her new phase of works, whereby she handles photography as a starting point for development leading to a creative work on the captured images using digital art resources.

VERA PAVANELLI Rare or even a few, are the artists that nowadays uses encaustic as a painting process, which had its splendor in ancient greece. It is noteworthy that the word itself comes from the Greek classic and means melt or peint with fire. The Brazilian artist Vera Pavanelli uses modern electric instruments and beeswax and devote her surveys to reactivate and promote the rebirth of this technique that allows artists to rediscover the refined effects of this painting technique and prove the endurance of this works. Emanuel von Lauenstein Massarani - Art Critic

Poucos ou mesmo raros sao os artistas que nos dias dias de hoje usam a encaustica como processo de pintura e cuja pratica teve o seu esplendor na grecia antiga. Vale salientar que a propria palavra provem do grego classico e significa derreter ou pintar a fogo. A artista Brasileira Vera Pavanelli, utilizando modernos instrumentos eletricos e cera de abelha, dedica suas pesquisas a reativar o renascimento dessa tecnica que permite aos artistas redescobrir os efeitos refinados da pintura e comprovar a durabilidade das obras.

TEREZA VIANNA tevianna17@gmail.com We are living a new and complex moment of connections in the real, the imaginary world – sharing life, art, dreams and fulfillments ...together on the Blue Planet. I was thinking about this while I was sketching. I thought about our searches, tried to express myself in a free and lucid form with these series of work presented here. Dots, dashes, lines in movement, sketches, mandalas, symbols – personal and universal graphics. Graffiti plays with us... I imagine it brings out the child that lives in us. While eliminating the excesses, remain the suggestive earthy tint and the primary colors that ease and smoothen the images to our eyes. And for this moment I want to simplify everything, searching for a priority, a formula, to reach our essence, love, a shining of a light, that even on paper illuminates and enlightens us, explains us by feeling and seeing it. How nice would it be if words were not necessary - if paintings and drawings themselves could tell any admirer their stories, their secrets, their magic. As if they were like portals inviting each admirer to transforming and exclusive journeys, love and gratitude. Tereza Vianna

...Estamos vivendo algo novo e complexo em conexões no real, no virtual, no imaginário-Compartilhando a vida, a arte, os sonhos e as realizações juntos... No planeta azul. Pensava sobre isso enquanto desenhava.Pensava sobre nossas buscas. Tentando me expressar de forma livre e lúdica nessa série de desenhos aqui apresentados. Pontos,riscos,linhas em movimento,rabiscos,símbolos- grafismos pessoais e universais. ...O grafite brinca com a gente ... Imagino que acione a criança que vive dentro de todos nós! Vamos eliminando os excessos propositalmente... O tom terra e as cores primárias permanecem facilitando e suavizando ,assim, a leitura das imagens pelo nosso olhar. De um instante ao outro me vem uma vontade louca de simplificar tudo... Procurando uma prioridade,uma fórmula, para atingir o nosso maior bem,nossa essência- O Essencial! - Algum ponto de Amor,Alguma linha ou círculo de brilho... Que mesmo no papel nos dê luz-nos ilumine- nos clareie- nos esclareça a nós mesmos. Que bom seria que não existisse necessidade de textos... Que as pinturas,os desenhos contassem por eles mesmos aos que os olhassem: Suas estórias,seus segredos, suas magias... De certa forma funcionassem como portais¨...Proporcionando viagens transformadoras e exclusivas a cada um de seus observadores.

DANIELE BLORIS danieleab@tjrj.jus.br DANIELE BLORIS AND HER LIFELINE DRAWINGS By Orlando Rafael dos Santos* “...the person who attends all around has an endles speech” PROVERBS 21. 28 Where does one line must has its end? Which are the limits in a surface of a sheet or in a canvas? Many of us are constantly faced by questions like these, especially when we find ourselves in the construction or in a creative appreciation of some impressive artworks as some bidimensional drawings, abstract ones. It seems as our entire life, with its meanings and all that matters is like a big tangle with all its crossing lines revealing details of the living drama… each and every moment with its own suitable facts within… A single line… as a single breath in a single life. A single unfinished (?...) line, self done while the life is on. A lifeline, as the cord that got to be cut for the very start of all personal life. It brings us the quiz: "Where does a line must has its end?" There are no answers good enough and this is our stuff for being alive. These questions and many others lay upon the artwork of Daniele Bloris, beautifully expressed by her amazing drawings, these truly sketches of a unique lifeline. After them I realize that something has changed deep inside. So, I face my own lifelines… as in a mirror. And I wish that many people can feel the same. That´s what Daniele Bloris drawings are for. Nov 2010 / Aug 2014 *Orlando Rafael dos Santos (Rio, 1950) is a contemporary Brazilian artist with studies in Theology, Philosophy and in Education by Art. ORS lives and works in Rio.

DALVA LUCCHESI PAINTING symphonies ... VILLA-LOBOS Art !!!!! How to think about painting a picture, if not sharpen all our senses. My works have a color or black and white story... The Artwork is seduction, pure and immediate visual load, which can attract our attention at once. You enter her world and within it or not enchant. My homage in this project, is the music and honored the Maestro and Composer Brazilian, Heitor Villa-Lobos, considered by many a revolutionary, who broke with traditional music in Brazil and became the greatest character of modernism in the country. His source of inspiration was the Folk songs, indigenous and popular, among the most renowned works are some like: "Shango", "Trenzinho Grit", "Amazon", "Uirapuru", "crying", "Serenades", "The Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5. "Of his inspirations, more than two thousand works appeared in all genres, performed with enthusiasm in the most important rooms of recitals and concerts worldwide. The exhibition, Painting Symphonies .... Villa-Lobos, proposes a new apprehension of art that transcends the merely represented, and meets the critical purpose of viewing the actual work with an expanded meaning and his powers of speech perception. Dalva Lucchesi Plastic Artist, cultural manager

PINTANDO SINFONIAS ... VILLA-LOBOS Arte!!!!! Como pensar em pintar um quadro, se não aguçar todos os nossos sentidos. Minhas obras contam uma história colorida ou em preto e branco... A Obra de arte é sedução, carga visual pura e imediata, que pode atrair o nosso olhar de uma só vez. É entrar em seu mundo e dentro dele se encantar ou não. A minha homenagem neste projeto, é a música e o homenageado o Maestro e Compositor Brasileiro, Heitor Villa-Lobos, considerado por muitos um revolucionário, que rompeu com a música tradicional no Brasil e se tornou o maior personagem do modernismo no país. Sua fonte de inspiração estava nas canções Folclóricas, indígenas e populares, entre as obras mais renomadas estão algumas como: “Xangô”, “Trenzinho Caipira”, “Amazonas”, “Uirapuru”,”choros”, “Serestas”, “As Bachianas Brasileiras no 5”. De suas inspirações, surgiram mais de duas mil obras em todos os gêneros, executada com entusiasmo nas mais importantes salas de recitais e concertos do mundo todo. A mostra, Pintando Sinfonias....Villa-Lobos, propõe uma nova apreensão da arte, que transcende o meramente representado, e cumpre o propósito crítico de encarar a obra real com uma percepção ampliada do significado e de seus poderes de expressão.

DIRCE FETT 17th - 19th of September, 2014 Inauguration 17th of September at 6 pm International ARTS coalition 4 west 43 street, Nre York, NY, 10036 Opening hours 11 am - 6 pm

DIRCE FETT I started painting professionally at a mature age, it was when I could dedicate my time entirely to this passion. Art has always been a part of my daily life even when cooking, raising the kids or painting small secrets works. That’s when I’ve began to search for more knowledge. When I look back, I see my self playing in the garden, climbing trees that I pretend were my office and the little river that flown behind my godmother’s house. I have lived all of that, but in a way I have kept those moments to live over and over. I now live in an intense, unique and special city, surrounded with florest, ocean and a lot of sun. I love painting nature and how it interferes in my affective memory. The colors have a special meaning to my work. The cooking recipies become canvas where the colors are the main ingredients. I try mixing the most varied techniques without worrying about establishing one pattern. Vigorous trace and spontaneity are my signature.

MARLENE BLOIS Marlene Blois, painter and poet, was born and lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She started her studies of painting when she was very young, and continued in the " Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage" (A Visual Arts School). She has already exhibited her works of art in individual and collective exhibitions in the country and abroad. In her present works, free from limits, she dares to deconstruct, in a certain way, with colors and strokes of brush, the hinted geometric shapes. The pure geometrism leaves its representativity in itself like a reaction or even a negation to the excess of rationalism it could take. The color is the element with marked presence in all her works of art, because she feels it enigmatic, impossible to be rationalized. With textures, spots and marked brush strokes, the colors assume an expressive symbolic dimension. As a poet and painter, she created the "Quadremes", a new space where Poetry and Painting are materialized. She tries with her esthetic perception to capture the ambiguity of the world and, with her poetic sensibility and the dramatization of art, to discover new meanings for whatever she sees, feels, captures, mingles and comprehends. Marlene Blois, peintre et poète, est née et habite à Rio de Janeiro, Brésil.Elle a commencé ses études de peinture très jeune et elle les a avancées à l’Ecole d’Arts Visuelles au Parque Lage (www.eavparquelage.gov. rj.br), en ayant déjà exposé ses oeuvres en vernissages individuels et collectifs dans son pays et à l’extérieur. En ce qui concerne ses travaux actuels, libre de limites,elle ose défaire d’une certaine manière, avec des couleurs et de coups de pinceaux, les formes géometriques insinuées. Le géometrisme pur manque d’avoir une répresentativité propre, comme une réaction ainsi qu’une négation à l’excès de rationalisme qu’il puisse obtenir. La couleur est l’élément le plus important dans tous ses travaux parce qu’elle se sent enigmatique, tout à fait impossible d’être rationnalisée.Les couleurs prennent une dimension symbolique en mettant en rélief les textures, les taches et le coup de pinceaux renforcées. Comme poète et peintre, elle a créé les Quadremas un nouveau espace où poésie et peinture se matérialisent.Avec sa perception esthétique, elle essaie de capter l’ambiguité du monde et, avec sa sensibilité poétique ainsi que la dramatization du faire artistique, découvrir de nouvelles significations pour ceux qu’elle voit,qu’elle sent, qu’elle capte, qu’elle mélange,qu’elle travaille avec son intuition. 72
