About Dogs, Dreams…

Dogs, Dreams and People: is the title of a body work that was painted during a three year period from 1990 to 1992.

The creation of these oil paintings comes from a need to express an inner turmoil through a visual medium: the art represents the struggle for harmony against the increasingly fragmented external world.

The struggle to develop as a woman and as an individual also helps shape the content. The work is inspired by conflict; it is violent, angry and at times bloody. The bloody violence of the attack and the moments before death are also depicted.

Although many paintings in this group have a dark, mysterious and frightening quality, there are examples where hope through strength, tenderness and independence exists.

The nature of most of the imagery is deeply personal. The images come from internal sources: dreams and the subconscious. There is a juiciness and vibrancy in the subject and in the paint.

The work is both challenging and powerful.
