Painting of landscapes touches fundamental questions about life and the relation between humankind and nature.

The Brazilian painter Ana Michaelis creates memories of views we have hardly seen, but become as live as our own remembrances. This presence is ephemeral, as time in her paintings works as a quick instrument that erase and vanishes the images of the memory.

From photographs, drawings, but mainly from memory the artist paints the landscape in black and white, applying strong nuances of these colors. Over it, a white layer of paint transforms the image, bearing its disappearance. The finished canvas resembles a memory that doesn’t belong us, allowing an anonymous past alive in our present. The process of covering the image with paint layers that permeate and weaken those images, strengthen the succession and passage of time that can not be represented by independent moments.

Although at first sight we see a white canvas or a frozen scene, slow and continuously afterwards, the same image seams to appear and vanish. In spite of the lack of humanity or signs of its participation, the landscape may suggest a timeless environment, but its whiteness allows the passage of time to reveal itself. (Cauê Alves)
