Successive stimuli from various and everyday impressions form in her subconscious abstract images which are constantly defragmented by memory. Their visual expression becomes a system of chromatic bursts of resonance frequencies, expressing internal tensions and vibrations, expanding and sometimes contracting space. Space, indeed and light are identical in her painting, which forms each time the stratigraphy of internal conflicts fluid field and continuous rearrangement of a matter that denatures drastically oscillations of its dynamic. In her painting important is strength and range of emotion, which is both transmitter and receiver. This wide and exuberant feeling is filtered and harnessed by true artistic “roots” and thus organized into compositions that acquire many times the character of music. The painter is not interested in the performance of the narrative, but the plot of the image itself, as deconstructed and through different every time quality valences of form and color balances, is rewritten from the elements that compose it, making the viewer feel part of the work.
