Imagine a child (this is the ongoing metaphore), clinging to its father’s leg as though it were a mast, building within herself prismatic sails and human portraits of the sea.
Patrícia Herédia's language fosters a visual dialogue, with photographic reverberations that expose the Olympian challenges of the sailing world.
Taught, synchronised bodies obtain their spirit from the winds, their knowledge, and the light that encompasses the competition. And creating in this manner the pure forms, the motives, the artist ennobles the soul of sailing. Let us be led by this sensibility, from wave to wave, so that, like to an oyster, we may espy light and shadow, sound and silence...sailing pearls.
