together we walk

The search for the identity of the physical and metaphysical female body has been present in my work more than a decade. It has found though a more concrete expres­sion since 2005 when I started the series of drawings “360 days”, a visual diary of myself/ a woman who makes a full turn (360 degrees) around herself. There, the body revealed its capacity to be different each day according to its intellectual and emotional positioning. The most recent works under the title "The ups and downs of motherhood" talk about a different beauty, there where the change itself has led to another level of body- conscience.
