The landscape of Florianopolis appears as though through a sun-kissed mist. Dreamy and beautiful, the island is depicted in a collage of photographs and acrylic on canvas. This evocative composition comes from Luiza Kemp.
"Through my work, I try to exercise my freedom and creativity, bringing me a tremendous inner peace."
"My house couldn't have been a more inspiring place for me to take my first steps in the universe of art. My father, Sérgio Mattos, is a recognized architect and sculptor, my mother, Tania Kemp, an architect and decorator. From both, I received a great incentive to create my first drawings and watercolors.
"In my house we breathed art and design, and my first interest was in drawing, already manifest in school where handicraft classes were my favorite part of the day. Soon afterward, I took a course in photography, developing a technique that subsequently mixed my pictures with collages, tints and acrylics.
"Through my work, I try to exercise my freedom and creativity, bringing me a tremendous inner peace. I can add to my pictures a new artistic element through collages and paints, creating an original and very decorative work that portrays the beautiful landscapes of southern Brazil."
I love this lady's work! I now own two of her works and find them exceptionally creative and lovely. They also are unique and interesting pieces that I am sure I will enjoy for many years without becoming bored with them -- even though and partly because the pallet is quite limited.
