Casa Do PovoThis series takes place in the village of Santa Luzia in Portugal. Hidden along the south coast, overlooking the Gulf of Cadiz, the humble community of Santa Luzia seem somewhat distant from the rest of the Western world by embracing their traditional roots and rebuking technological advances.

The result of its sheltered position means this Portuguese village is a time warp of 17th century churches, bright azulejo tiled walls and sleepy residents.

MADELEINEBLONDELL1Something strange emerges from the seawater at the marina in Faro. In fact, two sculptures that have spent decades forgotten in a corner of a council warehouse now can be seen in permanent exhibition at the Faro waterfront.

One is of a female figure, a sort of water nymph, with a shell shaped head and now seated on the steps of the old port in front of the hotel EVA. The other one is based on a whelk and is set on a temporary concrete base at the wharf.

Life in Loulé carries on as before...I come to Portugal every year to get away from city life, my parents have a place just outside the town of Loulé, in a tiny little village called Poco Novo. It’s a really remote location as it was an old derelict farmhouse at one time.

Iam 24 years old, and live in London. Being so cut off here gives a real time to reflect on things - there is no internet, TV etc. so it is sort of like being away from the modern age. As much as there is lots of tourism in surrounding areas  -Vilamoura, Vale de Lobo etc. - being so close to a quintessential Portuguese town such as Loulé really opens your eyes to what it’s like to be a citizen here.

Portugal has a lively media scene.

In a few whirlwind months she has taken part in a variety of collective exhibitions (including Arte Algarve’s Open V11), been approached by galleries in Lisbon and is now working hard on new paintings for shows in Barcelona and Cascais.
