HER WORK

Let’s imagine a natural ecstasy.

It’s not about the story, it’s about speeding the thought.

Scenic space as an area of aesthetic consistency, working with terms of

minimalism and precision, questioning if art is able to reunite the human vision

with the perception of the world, the high risk of love,

the grief and the tenderness, the braveness and the present,

finding at the same time the sense of humor.
