Medium: Visual Arts, Sculpture, Painting and Photography
“As both a dancer choreographer and visual artist, I have been exploring for more than 15 years the interactions between dance and visual arts (sculpture, drawing, painting, photography and video) and I have created my own concept, « The Material in Movement » in Paris.
3 years ago, I started to dance and create on the beautiful beaches of the Algarve and I fell in love with this region which inspires me in all the dimensions of my artistic approach.
Since February 2018, I am in annual residence at the LAC (Laboratório das Actividades Criativas) in the old prison of Lagos where I can work on my paintings and sculptures inspired by my daily dance performances in interaction with nature and the elements, and select my pictures always with the hope of discovering some magical and poetic ones which can express my feelings and tell mysterious stories to the public.
Through my paintings, sculptures and photographs, I try to express my vision and my experience of dance and femininity, explore the sense of movement and transmit the energy of joy and freedom.
All my works of art are connected to each other and complementary : my photographs are dancing self-portraits in interaction with nature which inspire me to create paintings of my « Planet Women » and to give birth to sculptures representing colourful dancing creatures.”
