“ She has always been brilliant in her juxtaposing of the figure with a landscape... and with operatic precision, (she is) eÅ ectively pulling us inside her scenarios and making us believe in them.” “ She has obviously looked hard at the cinema of noted director Federico Fellini. Like him, who
we might call her ‘mentor’... she has the same ability to make one of her models a ‘Portolese subject’. When I experience her images I often think of Fellini’s Roma fuorescing on the screen.”
-James D. Cambell
Portolese here transforms family wounds into testaments
“ Far from just processing her feelings toward her family,
of reconciliation. By virtue of her artistic practice the
suffering caused by the physical or psychological loss of a
loved one morphs into a public healing ritual.”
- Manon Blanchette, Ph. D.
