URBAN LANDSCAPES OILS ON CANVAS
I have been exploring my responses to the environment and heritage, the effects of nature and human impacts on land form, weather, erosion, architectural patterns. The common narrative in my painting throughout has been a storyline revealed through colour and texture expressing them in an abstract art form, where multiple layers of colour are worked back producing similarities to natural surfaces worn by the elements, revealing a previous layer, a story from before brought up to date.

- This paintings focuses on the wall surfaces of residential buildings in the Alfama district of Lisbon and aims to show how they are lamenting and longing for their lost layers of meaning, like the words of the Fado songs.
