Sheila Fraga explains, "Woman figure is the main theme of this series of works entitled 'Hope'.

"Woman body has been an inspirational and interest motive for many artists in the Art History. I had intended to take this concept in order to reflect not only the woman beauty and sensuality but also to incorporate my own living experiences within the history frame that my generation had lived.

"I would like to establish a dialogue between the audience and my paintings to provoke controversy and interest toward concepts of identity, spirituality and love.

"Characters portray feelings of love, defiance, meditation, hope, and encourage the spectator to dream.

"Nudity is not used to identify woman figure as a sex symbol but a bearer of feelings, spirituality, expressiveness and determination to pursue happiness and new ideas in the social scenario." The use of celestial settings depicted In the skies and clouds are implemented to reflect spirituality and its interaction with daily life. Techniques such as oil, pastel and cut-out are present in my paintings and drawings as a mean to transmit emotions and expressiveness. Itís creativity that strives me to seek new ways of expression to materialize my work. To create multiple scenarios with the only objective to express my inner truth.
