“The personages seem to be uncovered, astounded by the indiscreet spectator, like the enigma in their eyes had escaped from within, uncontrolled and untamed. Other times they are haughty, challenging and focusing all attention on the facial expression, waiting for a reaction from the viewer, seeing and being seen.
The human geography of Margarida Fleming is round in the mystery, in the words that are not spoken, but are readable through the face. In the map of emotions that represent us by means of undefined, quick traces and hyper-realistic eyes unravel the humanity that conceals the traits, because defines everything we distort in our image, our life, our soul.”
“The strokes that build up their deeply expressionistic faces are dense, thick and with an element of unrestrained erraticness.
Margarida’s paintings seem free. They manage to avoid the constraining shackles of gendered, artistic and beauty preconceptions. It creates something truly unique, although that doesn’t quite touch it.
Margarida’s artwork is a process of transformation. What happens at first is the seed and what follows is the blossoming cycle.They create a very honest representation of the person’s essential being. It creates a work of semi-fiction.”
