Portrait of a young woman wearing a baroque yellow shimmering dress and lace collar. She is sitting her face facing the light.

This series was inspired by baroque and renaissance paintings with a strong emphasis on light and shadows (clair-obscure) to let the portrait stand out. This is the polished version of the woman with the bewildered look, she is officially playing along the convention of being a woman in the 17th century.

This project is part of the Quiet Rebellion, the aim of this project is to give a voice to women that didn't have one through history, connecting the dots and inviting them in a scene that reflects their oppression and the ways they had to learn to rebel "quietly" from the place that society gave them, accepting their lot, feeling under pressure to conform. Their only form of escapism was to rebel inside, moving things slowly like the wings of a butterfly, creating a snowballing effect across history. This project is a reflection of the story of all these women that could not use their voices. I’ve found my inner self deeply resonating with the paintings of Artemisia Gentileschi, not that I've endured a similar oppression, but since childhood this desire to be a free and independent woman was always rooted in me. My idea with this project is to continue to rustle feathers, building up the quiet rebellion and bring out that powerful voice that I have tamed for so long!
