Nuda...


This is the last oil I have painted. I painted it "ex professo" for my solo exhibition "Nuda" , and the name of the painting is "NUDA" as well.
Although one of my main topics is the nude, my feelings toward nudity are antagonistic. When someone is nude is in extreme vulnerable... and what is more difficult? the nudity of a body? or the nudity of a soul?
Regarding myself both of them, I could only be nude in front of someone I totally trust. It is like a special gift, maybe a love gift....because I could only feel vulnerable in front of someone I trust....yes I give nudity a very high value, even a fetichist one...but here I am in contradiction too, am I not nuding my soul every time I do a painting?

Euan Uglow




What I enjoyed most of my trip to London was my approach to Euan Uglow.

He is after Egon Schiele the artist I love the most... Being able to see his real works has a deep impact on me. I was besides very lucky because it is not easy as far as I know to see Uglow's work. The British Tate has only one big Uglow canvas in the same show roon where Lucien Freud is, and Uglow shines in that room.
I was very lucky that just in the time I was in London the Marlborough Gallery was exhibiting around 30 works of Uglow, and when I was at the gallery the people there noticed my emotion and informed me that just 2 blocks away from there I could find more works of Uglow at Browse & Darby Gallery.

That gallery was incredible, I could see there the most poetic work of that Welsh ARTIST, at 3 PM they were showing a video of how Uglow used to work (E. Uglow died on year 2000). What impacted me the most, was that Uglow's face was incredible familiar to me...later I will scan a pic of him from a book I have bought. He had a beautiful face: very dark almond eyes and hair...his features give me joy and peace :) And besides, at the video room I get in touch with two very gentle old men, who told me they have studied art with Uglow when they were young and and one of them, Mr. Thomson told me beautiful things of this huge artist. I am really a lucky lady! I couldn't be nearer of Euan Uglow.....
