Director Association of Creativity Development, is so impressed

and spontaneity dominate her works. The cold colours she often
uses, truly express the climate and the state of feeling in her
works. The thick lines and the antithesis in light and shade
enlarge the dilemmas hidden in the shapes of the works.
paintings are dominated by man-centred and in this series
‘MASKS’ her worries about man and human relations are easily
seen. The artist says’ daily affectation, human isolation,
lack of communication between people, are topics that touch us.
Dominated by the agony to be appreciated and liked by people, in
our everyday relations, force us to hide our true personality
and present people a different one. Affectations, show-offs,
hypocrisies define our everyday life. Having as a refuge THE
MASK, we hide from the weaknesses, desires, insecurities even
from our own selves.
Perentos remarks: Painter’s questions dominate in her works. Her witness shown
through her protagonist lives, becomes caustic and forces the
viewer to discover his own beliefs. Forces the honest viewer to
recognise himself and walk with the humanity to find its
genuine voice that shake us after years of silence. Art springs
directly from the everyday life’s problems and oppressions.
Feelings transformed into pictures are able to pass their
meanings to everyone’.
