 "Dissonances and Dérangements":

The pictures of the "Dissonances and dérangements" phase have been created during the years 2002 and 2004.
This series grew from the fascination for the beauty of imperfection.
Why do we love the crumbling plaster, the peeled off paint on old houses? They are giving us history, memory or imagination of occasions and the wormth of human life - in opposition to the rational coldness of perfection.
Derangements are used to bring poems on canvas. In most cases these are fractions of memories.
The materials Ana de Medeiros uses for this purpose accompany and emphasize the presentation of the particular situation
Besides acrylics, gouache, watercolor, charcoal, pastel, emulsion painting and oil the artist often uses additional materials like sand, nails, salt or parts of plants to further intensify the special symbolic character of her paintings.

"La chambre des couleurs":

Series "La Chambre des Couleurs", started 2004 and is still in progress. "La Chambre des Couleurs" which means "the room of colors" stands as a synonym for the life itself. The painter and sculptor Ana de Medeiros started this series with the painting "Entrée dans la chambre.." (entrance to the room of colors), a painting the artist meant to symbolize both an access to life but also an exit. Right after entering the room of colors - though slowly - a process starts, like a game full of naivity, on search, without experience, characterized by minimalistic painting in basic colors on a rough and sandy canvas which again reminds of the artists country.

  • Ein Aufschrei gegen die Kriege.
    Solange diejenigen, die die Kriege anzetteln sie nur in Planspielen vollziehen und der einfache Soldat ihn in Wirklich-keit durchstehen muss, wird es keine Änderung geben.
    Tolles Konzept, gratuliere!
