TOO MANY FISHES, TOO FEW LOAVES
“In the series Too many fishes, too few loaves for example, we see the outline of a contemporary business man watching with greed a large floating fishbone, surrounded by a fine dust of colored polka dots. This apparently carefree image immediately tells the violent competitiveness of a world that is increasingly impoverished of its resources and the scandalous inequality of a wealth that is the prerogative of the few to the detriment of the majority of the community. But at the same time, the image seems to prefigure the imminent victory of color, a disruptive vital force that will succeed in subverting the status quo in a new harmony. Here the artist’s gift of speaking about the problems of our times with depth and lightness is more evident than ever, proposing positive models of thought and behavior without reducing the explosive reach of her message. The time of fantasy and dreams can be here and now, if we actively engage in a mutual dialogue to reach love and hope: this is the message of Don Quixote Time (the work has been awarded with the Graphis Honorable Mention in New York in 2019 and the Poster Annual 2020) that revisits the visionary character of Miguel de Cervantes, transforming it into a sort of contemporary philosopher who, unlike his seventeenth-century predecessor, will succeed in winning a happy ending through reflection and humor.” Juliet Art Magazine
