Noêmia Guerra, a Brazilian artist, dedicates her exhibition at the Jacques Massol Gallery to the dances and landscapes of the North of her country. Her paintings, beautifully luminous, are rich and velvety. We find light and warm colors in “Window over the Pillory”. Her “Beach of Itapã” and the painting “Stormy Sky over Amaralina” give a calm sensation precisely because they are frenetic.

Her “Aluja Dancers” and “Changô Dances” are torrential. Explosive colors and a certain mystery characterize these paintings.
