paintings


I'm having an exhibition on monday, 26th january here in Nouakchott in a small gallery owned by two friends. There I'll be showing 10 lanscapes, acrylics on paper mounted on board. More than real views they're my impressions.

Those one's are 40 x 20 x 4 cm but I'm presenting other sizes, sometimes I'll use photographs I've taken to help me with details other times I just let go not caring for the real. I love to see different people recognising different places.

We suffer frequently from sandstorms and that comes through in my paintings.

The first and this last are viewsfrom the national park of the Banc d'Arguin by the seaside, where the desert meets the Atlantique. http://isabelfiadeiro.uniterre.com

  5. Terrific landscapes. The very subtle transitions of color feel like luminous abstract paintings to me. The barren land gives the image an iconic meditative quality.

  6. Isabel - thanks for visiting my site. Likewise, I didn't know you had a blog yourself - your paintings are incredible. You really capture the vastness very well.
