Série - AS MARIAS

A série traz uma curiosa perspectiva do Brasil através de suas mulheres. A artista partiu da divertida afirmação de um escritor de folhetim brasileiro de que a típica mulher brasileira é doméstica, preta e se chama Maria.


De fato, o Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE) mostra que no Brasil existem 11,7 milhões de Marias e 54% da população brasileira é negra. Além disso, uma pesquisa divulgada pela Organização Internacional do trabalho (OIT) em 2010 revelou que dos 52,6 milhões de trabalhadores domésticos no mundo, 7,2 milhões são brasileiros e destes, 93% são mulheres.


Isso não significa que esses dados combinados resultem no estereótipo acima descrito, mas, segundo a artista, é no mínimo intrigante e pode sim influenciar no espirito que pousa sobre o jargão utilizado pelo escritor.


As obras, que combinam acrílica, esmalte, óleo, pigmentos e infinitos materiais reciclados, retratam ícones e perfis femininos brasileiros como se todos fossem pretos e se chamassem Maria.
