"Helena Alves dazzles with the possibilities of shapes and colors showing great interest in dominate these two major elements of painting.
In this way she shows the outline of the human groups that give a support for her drawing.
Here, she works with blocks of pyramids shapes, that provide the strength for the painting.
At the same time, the aspect of movement reaching all the elements. Maybe this is the painter biggest strength".
