Carolina explores tradicional Communities, untouched by outside influence.
With our fast-pacing world we are quickly loosing cultural richness. Piteira is a contemporary artist who understands the changing times and aims to represent the purity of Mankind.
The big scale portraits take us to an extraordinary journey of emotional and spiritual lives of Communities that are slowly disappearing. All the portraits have a strong sense of introspection, calmness and contemplation.
In her travels around the world, Piteira meets her subjects, collects textiles - sometimes centenary doors and windows. Later, she paints these inspiring people mixing paint with collage bringing together a more genuine and authentic experience.
These paintings homage the importance to preserve our cultures, ethics and traditions avoiding a monochromatic world.
