Manuela Madeira is a working artist mainly painting in oils on panels and canvas.
Her figurative and abstract images of women explore and demonstrate how their experiences, emotions and sensations as females are expressed and can be seen in depictions of their physical presence.
Manuela creates challenging pieces imbued with layers of meaning that invite the viewer to develop a relationship with the subject of the painting and explore.
By drawing attention to details such as gestures and physical discomfort during these intimate conversations, Manuela emphasizes empathy and emotions, adding layers to the representational form.
