Being a woman is a gift filled with beauty, intensity, mystery, strength and creation; a reflection of the pearls that are formed in an ocean teemed with life
In collaboration with Fernanda Lourenço from Brazil, ‘Pearls Of Love’ is a project that explores what it means to be a woman.
Fernanda Lourenço is a therapist who, after years of working in the clinic with different women, writes how,
Much women have withdrawn from themselves due to lack of perception, acceptance and above all because they do not see themselves in a positive and loving way. Unfortunately they are often left empty, giving too much of their power to life situations that have passed or to old sorrows or pains
Through body painting, Fernanda symbolically expresses that being a woman is a gift filled with beauty, intensity, mystery, strength and creation; a reflection of the pearls that are formed in an ocean teemed with life.
What is it to be a woman for you?
For me, to be a woman is to be cyclical, to be fertile in every way.
What moment do you remember in your life that made you even stronger?
There were many, I think life always manages to remind me how strong I am. But no doubt giving birth to my son and consequently opening me to motherhood in my life was a milestone.
What relationship do you have with your body?
Each time a more intimate relationship with my body. Lately understanding my menstrual cycle and my sexuality in a deeper way. I am alert to any symptoms. And I have moments of thinking that I could eat better and do some more physical activity to make my body healthier and prevent something.
What does your body mean to you?
My body is my support in this life. It is through him that I live most of my experiences and am very grateful for everything.
How do you see the relationship between woman and man?
I see it as a great force. A union that can make many changes. But this is something I believe, not what I have experienced. It’s a big challenge.
