Lu Mourelle brings everyday feelings into this special collection. It’s about how we feel when we are stuck in social conventions. Ready to hang.
Paintings, 100 × 120 cm
It is a collection featuring characters painted between the figurative and the abstract. Even without the realistic trait, Lu Mourelle manages to expose characteristics of specific figures using grey as the main colour.
The artist intends to highlight feelings and moods connected to everyday life. They are fleeting situations that can happen during the day, during a conversation, or because of some event in modern life. Lu Mourelle is committed to portraying emotions.
This series was produced before the health emergency caused by Covid-19. However, it shows the artist’s anticipation of compulsory isolation. Lu Mourelle creates characters with feelings and emotions linked to social life and debates the influence of the environment and society on the behaviour of men and women.
Lu Mourelle’s artworks integrate private and public collections in the USA, Canada, Germany, Belgium, France, The United Kingdom, Ireland, Luxembourg, Spain, Italy, China, Japan, and South Korea.

Lu Mourelle currently lives and works in Portugal. She baptizes her gallery in the Citadel Art District in Cascais, a space she has occupied as an artistic residence since May 2019.
Lu Mourelle’s work is the result of the emotional baggage of the artist, who since childhood alternates residence between Brazil and Europe. From an early age, she is used to integrate plural and diverse societies. From the studies of painting and all this experience of life, in such unique societies, Lu Mourelle absorbs the cultural multiplicity of peoples and ways of expressing themselves, socially and artistically.
The artist is the author of artworks that today integrate private and public collections in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Portugal, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom, Luxembourg, China and Japan.
