I am a Portuguese visual artist and I live in Chile

  • Some time ago, when I was in Portugal, someone ask me to write what I thought of my artwork. This was what I wrote:

Latitudes and Attitudes
?Latitude imposed

In me, there is also the spirit of the Portuguese sailors and adventurers.
It all starts with the journey imposed from the old world, the colonial Portugal to Mozambique, in Africa, full of black ethnicity , magic, shapes, textures, lights and a fantastic colorful splendor .The distance between my dormant origins and the sudden awakening does not exhaust the endless question: Who am I? I experiment this fabulous latitude, mixing it with other lives, other pains, with the purity of color and pattern of tiles they call Mestiza .

I built Attitudes from my Latitudes.
In these Latitudes, I searched the jungle light seeds that populate my paintings and ceramics.
In these Latitudes, I found the mestizo that inhabiting my works.

My Latitudes and Attitudes and the mix of color and pain that confronted me during this precursor of life determine my pursuit of art within the human being, specifically in the Universe of Being a Woman.
I am aware that in art, knowledge is to move, that art does not interpret, reveals, does not explain … shows the hidden side of the human being.
What I paint is therefore a journey inside the mind … in the “doors and windows of the soul”, female territories of connection with Life and Divinity.
These Latitudes, my attitudes and through Art I continued seeking the experiences of “Being a Woman”.
