A place of one's own -by Virginia Woolf's essay- is composed of a set of youth portraits. The naked bodies of my friends appear relaxed and playful. This, my first series of paintings, creates a space of its own. It is a first action in defense of personal delight and the act of painting. An approach to the uncertain and invisible place that women occupy in the History of Painting and their very visible place as subjects of representation. It is an intimate and general reflection on the notion of being a young woman in relation to painting.
