Maria Jordão

 

Maria Jordão works spontaneously with contrasting colors and vertical lines spawned by her spatula. She then creates surfaces in which tonal layers bring luminosity, perspective, and balance throughout the composition. 

Her scenes are images of a present memory, which depict passages, openings, and escapes into a dream-like universe. Nature is a pretext for Maria Jordão's unique encounter with her own emotions, which she reveals in light, shape, and color. These landscapes are interpreted and constructed anew through a spontaneous, autonomous and free-flowing painting process that anchors itself on a solid drawing.
