Contemporary art lovers, and more specifically those who follow Lu Verissimo’s work progress, have their minds dwell on an intriguing matter: where does the uniqueness of her thought and creative processes stem from? The closest explanation to what the truth might be is that the artist has well found those secret doors leading to even more secret rooms burrowed deep in the human psyche.
Whoever is not an artist would not step in and out of those rooms without self-inflicting damage. Powerful artists, like Verissimo, dive in and stride out, only to tell us what they saw in paint and shades ingeniously laid on canvas. That is where her creative force stem from: rooms in your mind you’d rather not venture into. Instead delight yourself with a rescued and overwhelmingly beautiful picture.
