“Art has always been part of my life; I was born in the land of Magic Realism and I love it; my intention is to create Visual Magic Realism in my work. The beauty and exuberance of nature and people are my deepest inspiration to paint.” It is weaving all the layers and threads of my life, my cultural background, and my emotions, that I feel complete when I paint; gold, fibers, textures, are always there, as witness of my heritage and companions of my search. The paintings presented in this call are from the series titled: "Naturalized" "Established plant that lives in regions where is it not indigenous" When I researched about this plants that I recognized from my childhood on a different climate, I understood this word, we are all naturalized at some point, we are part of nature and creation, we move, we travel, we also create bonds giving plants and trees among nations, what is exotic here is ordinary somewhere else, this blew me away!
