“Paradise series is a convention. It is something unreachable, like a parallel utopia where perfection and beauty are prioritized. I want to explore the idea of the subjectivity of a paradise and how this “ideal place” can be filled with our visions projected upon it. They are different for each of us. Paradise can be related to memory, childhood, and dreams. As children, we imagined it to be a fantastic place, full of illusions. When we grow up and become less innocent and more skeptic, this convention survives, although much of that place has been abandoned and replaced with new ideals, like professional achievements, endless love, success, happiness, beauty, youth, etc. " - Lucia
Artist is influenced by Henry Matisse, Frida Kahlo, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Gustav Klimt
