The rhythm and color, warmth and emotion of Brazilian
folklore mix together with bouquets of flowers and
flowering trees of the European Spring. They join in a
united expression of the artistís personality, because she
needs to make personal statements about life. The quality
of the dance in the figurative scenes is marked with
vigor. The figures take part in a ball, in which many
movements are instantaneously agreed and the instant is
the moment when the beholder contemplates the scene and
understands its meaning. This is not a literary form of
art. It is not necessary to stop and meditate, because its
impact goes deeper than mere reflection. It is painting
that comes from the heart. If the heart sings in warm
colors, so much the better for the beholder and so much
the happier is the artist.
The presentation at the Stephen Maltz Gallery is
excellent; the paintings are well spaced out and one is
free to appreciate each one. The overall effect is that of
being free to be happy. Perhaps some dances are inspired
by severe themes, but the dancers act as if they were the
theme itself. Life, love and hope are the key.
The success of the exhibition seems to be assured.
