This work represents an expanse of networks and mosaics, all in a composition with receding perspective. Maria Helena Vieira Da Silva uses a restrained color palette, punctuated with a few touches of bright color. The artist borrows forms from the real world, notably from urban planning. The strokes of paint take possession of the canvas, they are energetic, dazzling and expressive. This work arouses a feeling of confusion or even spatio-temporal disorientation.
