“The artist has full conscience that to research and dominate the colour is much more than just an exercise. It is an act that leads to the knowledge of one self and, mainly, it unveils new paths by the juxtaposition of colours and the passages that they provide. Her work doesn’t need a concrete referential for its main quality lies justly in the construction of structures thanks to subtle games of transparencies and creative visual compositions.”
