Artistic Statement : Long attached to the graphic values of visual expression, the maturing substance of her work became richer and transcended the figurative towards abstract expression. We live in the era of digital technology; her approach is yet deliberately traditionally pictorial. She always prepares her material: she stretches the canvas, raw and sensual, she creates emptiness with the coat of primer, she prepares her colors, flowing and smooth. She chooses the paper and according to the texture she starts pouring the ink that she is fond of. All these steps allow her to get into peak condition before taking action… The gesture of a large paintbrush, brush or a spalter lays the dynamics. Then the eye evaluates and brings the picture to an ending. But chance always finds a space and tells us about sensitiveness (serendipity).
