Concept

My work is about feelings, is about freedom. I create free and spontaneous paintings, following extraordinary music. Each painting has the name of an inspiring song. It can be a face, a body or an abstract painting, it can be colorful or black and white... that depends on "where" the music can take...
My work is about feelings, is about freedom. I create free and spontaneous paintings, following extraordinary music. Each painting has the name of an inspiring song. It can be a face, a body or an abstract painting, it can be colorful or black and white... that depends on "where" the music can take me.

Most of my works are abstract paintings, frequently inspired in the nature. In its colours and textures, in the storms, in the sun and the moon, in the sea and the sky, in the rain.
The music and my emotions determine the result: quiet and peaceful, vibrant and passionate or dark and unsettling. Always minimalist as the nature is.
Emotions are applied energetically on the canvas, in several layers of colors and textures, for several days. Each color and texture means a specific feeling or sensation, and each layer is applied with a different technique, reflecting the emotion of the moment.
The result is always a mixture of feelings that embrace and transmit life.

Frequently, I feel the need to paint people, the need to express the sensuality, the glamour, the power, the humility of the human beings. The influence of realism and pop art is visible in those paintings, always large in dimensions.

I use traditional techniques, mainly quality acrylic on canvas, mixed with everything I can imagine to create soft and hard textures. Big brushes, self-made squeegees and several layers of acrylic are part of all the abstract paintings development. All of them are ready to hang.

Joana Ribeiro da Silva was born in Porto, Portugal, where she lives. On the eve of entering the University, she switched from the arts area, which she attended in high school, to engineering, as it seemed to be a greater challenge. Later she took an MBA and is currently COO of an International Fashion company. But her great passion is painting. It is in painting that she finds peace and balances herself, anxiously looking for new colors, shapes and textures. In her works, we can find huge faces that transport emotions, and big textured abstracts that reflect the strength of nature. Her work was exposed in several art fairs in Europe and it is recognized by different galleries and art curators.
Married and mother of two, it is with enormous discipline that she reconciles all dimensions of her life. A source of energy, she says she cannot live without love and art.
