Abstract

In her oil paintings, we see the elegance of calligraphic lines. Viewers can lose themselves in the succession of waves and curls adorning her paintings, departing, as they do, from the conventions of objective representation in Western culture. Small, firm and forthright touches produce the vortices, the corymbs and the clusters from the unbridled chromaticism of her painting, which follow each other relentlessly in an ornamental system that brings to mind the bulimic surfaces of Gustav Klimt.
