Ana Palma: Femina

16 May 19 — 26 May 19
Venue: Deptford Does Art, 28 Deptford High Street, SE8 4AF
FEMINA is a personal journey to understand the idea of femininity. Natural elements, women, and poetry merge together to create images that tell stories about sweetness, bitterness, fragility and endurance. What makes a woman a woman? What does it mean to be a woman in the 21st century? What role does the past play in how women see themselves and are seen today?

In this body of work, Ana explores how magical the process of creating or finding an image is. Letting her intuition lead the way she allows ideas to start revealing themselves through lines and brushstrokes while she digs into the depths of two-dimensionality to uncover skin, flesh and bones.
