TRAPPED IN FREEDOM is an auto-portrayal short film, written and performed by SWAY® on what drives an artist on Monaco ground in holistic relation to world affairs; starting with two distinct wave mouvements of each 2,5 x 5 meter long series, painted live, extracted from the original 80m linear billboard around the Port Hercules she painted in 3 nights of July 2014.
As an abstract expressionist, SWAY's body of work is based on visual analogies of the souls' "inscapes" (interior landscapes), which she perceives as the actual body. Besides her large-scale scenographic murals and paintings in various collector's homes and chapels in the South of France, art collectors have commonly found in her works, a reminiscence in style with the paintings of HOKUSAI, for often been referred to his waves;.. with the lines of ZAHA HADID for both being driven by the shapes of dunes, reminiscent of SWAY's Ocean-Skies;.. with ROBERTO MATTA for her soulscapes versus his "inscapes; and at last with FRIDA KAHLO for a similar life tracks and process of visualisation.
