Sara Maia is a master in questioning. She uses painting as a narrative medium and confronts us at the border between the real and the imaginary. We know hervisceral side, exposing the absurdity of the unusual, the dark corners with a rawness that does not leave us indifferent.

There is however another Sara Maia, revealing irony and social criticism, always balancing on a thin line that binds us and questions us. It is a painting of her time, of the issues and questions in direct confrontation with the set idea of decoration. You must want to hug her to achieve it.
