About the work
This mixed media work elicits a desire to create an imaginary space that induces a surreal and mystical feel. There is a feminine nuance that perfectly overwhelms composition and style, with Matisse-like moments of collage. The figures suggest leisure; bodies in repose and the use of a more primary palette is underscoring the basic simplicity that life can offer. Whether exterior or interior scene, natural sweetness is infused and the light emerging of this image, invites the viewer's imagination to actively participate.
