from 17 May to 14 June 2008

Anna Dos Santos is an artist from Toulouse who has dedicated her life to painting for the last ten years. She was awarded several prizes at group exhibitions and will exhibit about fifteen paintings at the Casa d'Espana, in Castres (Tarn) from 17 May until 14 June 2008.

Old papers, bits of literature, musical scores, writings brought back from my many travels... For Anna Dos Santos, paper may start the whole creative process and writing plays a major role in her work. Words merge with colour and material to build up spaces of creation, spaces for travelling and coloured atmospheres between Earth and Sky. Paper bearing words on it carries along with it a memory, then it sticks onto the canvas and connects to diluted inks and acrylics. Either readable or unreadable, the word is in itself a kind of statement altogether cultural, temporal and aesthetic in the same way as colour, shape or matter. Often, writing appears in different languages when we move from one fragment to the next on the same painting as if to disclose an open vision of the world, beyond the lines, beyond borders.
Born in France but of Portuguese origin, Anna Dos Santos has always had a taste and passion for travelling, especially to multicultural and multilingual lands....
« Language is the best tool for communication in our modern world and an excellent vehicle for the freedom of expression and integration... » she says .

Open to the public everyday (except on Sundays)
    from 9.30 am until 11.30 am + Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays from 15.30 until 17.30

Anna will be present on Saturdays from 10.00 am until 12.00 am
