1. Guanabara is beautiful and toothless | 2010

Because Rio de Janeiro is among the world’s most frequently depicted cities, I chose one of its most beautiful landscapes to create this work: an outline of the mountains surrounding Guanabara bay.

It was co-authored for the Métissages project with French maître d’art Mylène Salvador-Ros and financed by the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP), Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, Paris.
