MARIALUISA HASN'T GONE FISHING : LOOK AT ONE
OF HER LATEST WORKS !!!!!
Completed last month , this oil on linen , measuring 75 cm. x 66 cm. , shows , once more , all you want to see , dear spectator !
Our eyes , I am sure , are attracted by the vigour of the chromatic composition , but , then , is the mind taking over ??
Can an undefined shape , a shadow maybe , remain still and cold ? Or , will it develop into one of our wildest dreams ( a nightmare for some .. ) , will it make us happy , frightened or sad ?? Will this crazy world spin around a flagpole , .... will our mood change a little , for what we are just seeing ( or imagining ) ??
Marialuisa has thrown her line ....
now she is waiting for your comments !!!!

Oil on linen . 88 x 71 cm.
THE VERY LATEST PAINTING ON SHOW , ONLY FOR YOU !
It is not yet completely dry : it depicts a landscape of the town of Lagos , where the new faces the old ( not unusual , in this part of the world , so rapidly " developing ".. ) , and , together , in harmony ( at least , in the eyes of the artist ) , they constitute a challenging reality .
If you , leisurely , walked up and down , in the narrow alleys of this old walled town , you might encounter a hidden corner , which might remind you of this Marialuisa's dream .... Then , your mind should be left free to run around , looking for what others can't see , or see differently : only so , if your sight is pure and has no preconceptions , the true meaning of the place could appear to you .... But , please , don't try to record it by your camera !!!!
