"How to get Flowers in a jar II" of Maíse Couto is a show whose conceptual starting point the epigraph of Clarice Lispector:
“[…]The oblique is very intimate life…live the richness of the Earth…Yes. Life is very oriental. Only a few people chosen by fate to chance proved elusive and delicate freedom of life. It's like knowing arrange flowers in a vase: a useless wisdom. This freedom fugitive of life should not be never forgotten: must be present as a telogen…live this life is more a remember her indirect than a live straight…Only for beginners so life becomes tenderly real[…]”
LISPECTOR, Clarice. (1973). Living Water, RJ: Ed. Rocco, 1998.p.69
Her series of paintings delineate a pictorial universe drawn from the experimentation of a space that does not put the linearity of any known perspective, but a landscape just experienced in the free territory of poetry and painting.
The creative process of the artist is given from the blank screen problem and the resulting selection and deletion game installation in search of balance of plastic elements that cross the boundaries between figuration and abstraction.
Landscapes imagined, are usually inhabited by a child inspired by the pictures of her daughter. The symbol, embodies your own image in undefined spaces, in situations and actions that reveals remnants merged and imagination absolutely unaware, Remaking the plan their "indirect memories".
Images of fragments of memory in the making of the painting made randomly with gestural impulses fashioned in colors and shapes various.
