Alice Pasquini recently returned home from painting on the island of Santa Maria in the Azores for Festival Sete Sois Sete Luas. Using spraypaint meant for cars—the only kind available—she painted two pieces close to the ocean. Inspired by the form and color of the walls, she painted two women—or maybe the same woman—one in front of the other.
They gaze out toward the horizon and look at the ocean from this island. “Today we’re living in difficult times in where many cross the water toward new lands in search of a better life, not always arriving in the end.”
