Rio de Janeiro, 1976
Her work is mainly made up of drawing and painting. It speaks of a fictional universe, a mystical aristocracy in which the female figure reigns in sovereignty. In this court, the rituals of nobility present themselves in non-explicit narratives that portray games of power opposing the feminine and the masculine, force and submission, eroticism and death. They are all built from the association of literary and historical stimuli as well as affective memories.
These issues are directly linked to the blunt choices of colour, objects and hybrid forms that take us back to archetypical characters from fairytales - only this time, they face intense dialogues and duels.
