Alice Quaresma mixes personal photographs and abstract painting, and draws the viewer onto a poetical journey. Her work gives an emotional and sensitive reading while guiding the spectator’s eye, and they offer a strong link with her personal history. The transfer of the viewer’s attention towards painting and color allow one to enter a singular imagery, away from any rational space.
