Birdwoman 2016

"Proud, determined Vikings, a macabre totem, a skull Pinocchio, a slightly creepy feast and apocalyptic tableaus that contrast beauty and the bizarre are amongst the characters and scenes featured in 'After the Fall' solo exhibition. The solid backgrounds, either jet black or gradient gray, sometimes enriched by blood red curtains and white snow, are used to frame the macabre, surreal objects or figures. Through her wonderful use of shadows she manages to heighten their mystery and add an air of prestige. They tell us stories about past times and the passing of time, possibilities and choices. Inspired by the familiar and history, her oil painting expose emotions while awakening them in us."
