In these works, the themes certainly rediscover a extra empathetic strategy in direction of neighborhood by caring gestures, hugs, references to motherhood and softer poses. They’re joined by different landscapes and nonetheless lives with floral and home themes that, in addition to granting a way of chromatic and rhythmic stability to your complete exhibition, proceed to evoke a generative sensory dimension.
