How I Define Feminism:
Everyone seeing and treating each other equally.
I am the artist T.F.Moreira. I have recently exhibited my art in the Oxmarket Centre of Arts, the Otter Gallery and the District Gallery in Chichester. My art is unique in both painting and concept. My paintings have been recognised due their connections between the body/womanhood and Mother Earth. My landscapes represent the degeneration of the natural world. The controversy of smooth brush strokes, delicately placed, in comparison to the bold impasto marks. Signifying the ‘yin and yang’ of our world, as well as the various textures it possesses. The intense tonal contrasts of the dark oils, the vibrant hues to match. I express the beauty and darkness of the world through my paintings, incorporating human aspects in order to show how human kind effects the world around them. The control, the pain and the beauty that remains. Articulating how we are all connected, painting how I view the world in my own image of what I see, not how it should be painted. I immerse myself in my art, getting lost in the world I am creating. I am known as an Impressionist painter due to my speed when I paint. I paint in oils. The rich quality and texture it produces adds to the unique quality of my art.
