Graphite and colored pencil on paper
Polyptych of 5 pieces

De Moraes' work is a visual whirlwind, constantly in transformation, with its unique hues and expressive lines. She produces diptychs and polyptychs where the strokes and colours cross the boundaries of the paper, sometimes following clear paths and other times taking divergent trails.

On occasions when the artist is not satisfied with a merely two-dimensional plane, she cuts and fragments it, before reconstructing the different parts to create a new dynamic. In these collages, the small drawings, resized by being split, are pieced together once again. These then create a series of unlikely encounters in different planes and produce an unexpected three-dimensionality. This three-dimensional exploration inspired her recent journey into enamelled ceramic sculptures.
