I collect traces of reality: posters,
newspapers, from all cultures
and all publications,
pieces of women’s legends, laces,
old tissues, used tapestries.
Sometimes I use the earth,
which becomes fertilizer
for my paintings. I choose spray
paints used in street art
and combine them with oil paint.
I work with relief and layers.
My approach consists of extracting
in a stream, like in calligraphy,
the sotto voce, which is born from
unconscious memories and flashes
of the past in all aspects.
Reconnect with the wildness of intuition,
from the body to the paint, all while
chiseling out an idea. In this way,
I differ from other artists
who merely conceptualize or paint
“I needed time to create, repeatedly and in multiples.
I first sculpted immense volumes that moved and lit up.
I was a feminist, sexually liberated, creative and an entrepreneur.
I faced Everest and it was my chance. Today I am ready.” XB_R_
