The physical and mental space reproduced in her paintings, mainly in monochrome, is closely correlated to Michel Foucault's concept of Heterotopias. Starting from an investigation on “neither here nor there places” mentioned by the French philosopher, the author focuses on transience of spaces and situations questioning herself about their meaning. What comes to light is that a hotel, a subway and a graveyard are physical and tangible places but also a reference to a mental, symbolic and built space of culture. Her works propose a representation of a world where they speak about a personal vision and an superpersonal dimension of a specific point of view.​
