The Nostalgia of Womanhood
Stella S. Franco’s work is a representation of melancholy and how a woman’s life, particularly in our Western society, may be very lonely indeed. Her generation has witnessed an ambiguous dynamic of being, in which the emancipation of certain women in a changing world reinforced the figure of traditional women as a correlated effect. Women began to express their freedom and desires in a variety of ways. The desire for individuality came with its specific kind of loneliness, while the forsakenness of a personal identity in a traditional social- familiar setting implied a certain sense of alienation of the self, be it a conscious or unconscious process. Hence Stella’s work about the mind and in particular about women’s mind. Her work about the abstract and her work about specific objects perform an intriguing and meaningful dynamic to be observed in her art. It all comes down to an approach to the mind from the notions of space and memory.
