Exhibition/exposiçâo:
'O Jardim: a respiração da cidade'
Inspired by the Botanic Garden of Lisbon University

What strikes one about this garden are the all-encompassing trees towering above and around you; the light filtering through layers of foliage; the textures of the trees and plants; the subtle, often sombre but sometimes glowing colours and contrasts that surprise you; the quiet pathways meandering through the garden; the sense of peace and distance from the city noise. In this exhibition I have tried to recreate and to communicate the experience of being immersed in a very special place.
