about the artist's works

From her first works on the landscape to her last photographs of still lifes, water and light are the two most representative elements of her work. This importance can be seen in the development of her work on the plants that she starts with greenhouses 1984-1990, where the plants are veiled by the plastic covered with dew early in the morning. The approach is similar in the course of work, the images are taken from a very close point, isolated from their surroundings. A photograph can be the beginning of a new research path. Thus, she takes the plants to her study and creates still lifes. Always using natural light. The advantage is that she can modify the light by sieving it and modifying it with plastics and other elements creating her light scene. Until reaching the submerged plants where the light plays with two translucent elements the crystal and the water.
