Oil on canvas and digital photography
During her time at GlogauAiR, Palma developed a work called ANIMALS. Her main focus was the representation of an utopia: a species that is free from their social norms. The cultural context of these creatures is erased but they chase impulses and urges. She intends to highlight the feeling of displacement and the crises of identity that the contemporary society is going through. Afterward, Rita takes these paintings out of the studio and displaces them in nature. Now the paintings of the displaced individuals are displaced themselves. These pieces are presented at the Open Studios in their “new habitat”.
