Artist's books and special projects
Production Amalia Tarallo, who encouraged me to make a patchwork of many writings about Japan and other trips around the world.

This is a book about bridges and how one mind can conceive and build them to cut distances short.
This is a book about time, the absence of time and the second that separates a dream from the world.
This is a book made of double pages of doubled images of one mind.
This is a book about the primordial elements that make the world and us all belong to our ultimate unifying factor: Nature.
This is a book of many voices and yet a book where silence finds its imperial kingdom.
This is a book of withering contradictions turning into the quest for an unquenching thirst for knowledge.
This is a book of whispers blown by the wind that, like the sky, unifiy and protect us all.
This is a book of lessons taught, lessons learned and lessons still to come, like an open door on a pitch dark night.
This is a book written by a woman, an artist, a songwriter, a singer, a painter, a photographer, a linguist, a poet.
This book is a gift to be treasured and to be offered, like one would do with one’s own labour.
This is a book of peace.

LICA ARTISTA FAMOSA
Production Amalia Tarallo
São Paulo, 2014
A few years ago, a poet friend, TT.O, from Melbourne, Australia, gave me a business card that read: Famous Poet. It made me laugh a lot, and yet I decided I wanted one which read: Famous Singer. I started making these drawings just for fun, and now I keep on getting a curious reaction from people when they see my artworks: they smile while they look up at me and this just creates a feeling of abatement between me, the rule-breaker, and them, who are , in turn, approving of and accepting their will to break the rules.
These artworks are black and white rule-breakers, graphic jokes about famous paintings that remain in people's minds forever, made by artists from the world over: Joan Miró, Man Ray, Edvard Munch, Tarsila do Amaral, Salvador Dali, Giorgio Morandi, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Amedeo Modigliani, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, Francis Bacon.
Signed: Famous Artist
