In "Flor de Sal", Diana Carvalho reveals a set of photographs, which were, in themselves, born of a proximity to painting. The pictures do not lie, do not deceive, but contain elements looking for deception. We can see tiles and blinds, walls and a liquid surface. One can find, mostly, references to Abstract Art, to the “tromp-l’oeil”, to the idea of a painting as a physical object and not a metaphor for something else.
