Julia Mota studied architecture before becoming an artist. In these intimate compositions, that resemble an after image- a vision left in the retina after you close your eyes- Mota synthesizes volumes and planes of perspective taken from characteristic architectural elements she observes in the chaotic landscape of São Paulo.

They translate and define the architecture of a space through its atmosphere, or Stimmung- the authenticity that is constituent of every landscape.
