Amazing works by #MafaldaFigueiredo available on @axs_art 🙌
The artist draws her inspiration from her own and other people's dreams, and uses these unreal images to portray her deep questioning about the human condition, the way people are perceived and perceive themselves, and how that can affect them in every category of everyday life.
She believes the object of art is an expression of the self, of the individual person that is the artist, integrated in a specific context and time. The use of figuration in her work intends to portray this belief, placing the observer inside a parallel dimension/world that exists inside her imagination, between dream and reality. In this dimension, there are human figures out of context, mysteriously staring at the observer, as if their gaze was telling a story about the world that cannot be verbalized and consists only of visual metaphors and exaggerations.
