"Dissonances and Dérangements":

The pictures of the "Dissonances and dérangements" phase have been created during the years 2002 and 2004.
This series grew from the fascination for the beauty of imperfection. Why do we love the crumbling plaster, the peeled off paint on old houses? They are giving us history, memory or imagination of occasions and the wormth of human life - in opposition to the rational coldness of perfection.
Derangements are used to bring poems on canvas. In most cases these are fractions of memories.
The materials Ana de Medeiros uses for this purpose accompany and emphasize the presentation of the particular situation.
Besides acrylics, gouache, watercolor, charcoal, pastel, emulsion painting and oil the artist often uses additional materials like sand, nails, salt or parts of plants to further intensify the special symbolic character of her paintings.
