JO VARGAS SHINES THROUGH THE BLACKNESS - A LYRIC, MELANCHOLIC, ENIGMATIC COLOR. SHE IS A PAINTER BUT LOVES NOCTURNAL WORK, A PAINTER BUT A DISCIPLE OF A MASTER MUSICIAN. A PAINTER WHO IS UNDER THE SPELL OF FILM AND A PAINTER WHO REJECTS CINEMA IN HER PAINTINGS. JO VARGAS IS ALWAYS ORIGINAL, INDEED PARADOXICAL. ROMANTIC IN HER PICTORIAL TASTES AND A WOMAN OF THE AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT IN HER SENSE OF JUSTICE. AN ARTIST AND A LITERARY SPIRIT, A GREAT READER. THERE ARE THE MYSTERIES WRITTEN BY HER TWIN SISTER FRED VARGAS. ABOVE ALL THERE IS VIRGINIA WOOLF, MALCOLM LOWRY, WRITERS WHOSE PORTRAITS SHE PAINTS SUCH AS DASHIELL HAMMETT OR DOSTOYEVSKY AND OTHERS WHOM SHE HAS NOT PAINTED, NOT YET.
