The painting of Katia de Carvalho is suspended between truth and fiction: while being too real to derive from fantasy, it is at the same time detached from the phenomenonical by the use of anatomical and perspective licences, producing a dreamlike vision, with aspects of nature, of the city and of man.
Katia de Carvalho’s work can be subdivided into two main thematic areas: urban landscapes and rural themes. The artist has dedicated much of her work to Venice, portraying the façades of the buildings hung like sheets between the air and water. These are arabesque bi-dimensionals depicted in the true sense of the words, as if the canvas were the toponymical homage of a student of architecture.
