EVERYTHING IS CHANGING ...... or is IT ???????????
A few days ago , worldwide , the International Day of the Woman was celebrated .
Strangely as it might appear , it did not come as a coincidence that Marialuisa gave the last touches to this painting on that very day !!
She has been attentively observing the evolution of the living conditions of this country , Portugal , in the last few years : the role of the Woman is gradually changing , becoming more assertive and , apparently more opportunities and freedom are there to be taken by all , without the discriminations and limitations which were common in the past ...
So a new role power still lies where it used to be and while women are allowed to accede to many important jobs and posts , are submitted to great pressures that , almost inevitably , become new chains ...
This new liberty for the Woman comes with strings attached and , often , limits her life much more dramatically than when she was confined to her bedroom and kitchen ....e for the Woman both in the family and at work seems to emerge , with the approval of the authorities and the general public ...
Marialuisa , though , is rather skeptical and this painting contains many

Oil on canvas : 76x55 cm.
THE INNER STRUGGLE : THE CLOCK IS TICKING , BUT THE MIND DOESN'T CARE , IT ABSTRACTS ....
Sooner or later , it happens to everybody ..... Things go wrong , places change dramatically , you find yourself out of the picture , crying , when they are all smiling , runnig while they stand still ...
It is when life needs a a brave change , when everything you have learnt and grown to love , loses its meaning and you are left alone , staring the emptiness around you !!
Probably , that's too much to be read in a single painting .... but all the clues are there , for those who can breathe in the atmosphere , hear the noises and freeze their eyes on that clock ...
