Paraiso Perdido, translates to Lost Paradise. The title was taken from the film Great Expectations. It was the ruined home of Anne Bancroft as Miss Havisham. I have collaged several of the pieces and included images of water lily pads that play off of the background that recalls reflections on almost still water. note the split female form that exists curtain like on the sides. I love the black and white in contrast to the emotional block of colour. The fading of the images recalls the first time that I watched Star Wars with the type receding into the background.
