Between the lines in the absence of lines in the paintings by Gracia Saad by Ana Mondini
A artist Gracia Saad chooses nature as one of the main themes of her paintings. The sea, in particular, appears quite strongly in his pictorial repertoire. In each scene, combinations of different chromatic tones appear, that make up quite unique horizons.
The artist builds her seas through the subtle mixture between tones, whose contrast, often imperceptible when changing from one key to another, performs a very specific smooth balance in each painting.
This same sweet balance reappears in the paintings of the Bahians with their full skirts. However, due to the complete absence of lines, it appears even more prominently. And, and, composts by chromatic stains, women blend with the background, showing that the world around disappears during the act of dancing.
Both in its seas and in its dancers, Gracia Saad doesn't just paint images, but it is precisely between the lines that the essence of what cannot be directly represented is manifested., namely, the invisible movement, be it physical or soul.
