After painting figuratively, the artist turned to abstraction, exploring the themes of space and time. For her, colour takes precedence over form, going beyond words. For some years now her outlook has become more radical and tends towards a certain minimalism; pattern is reduced to a series of coloured bands that divide the canvas horizontally or vertically. Behind this apparent rigidity, Gomes finds an infinite source of possibilities. She uses Matisse’s words (French artist of the XIX-XXth century) to explain her artistic approach: "Without a doubt, there are a thousand ways to work with colour, but when compose with it, like a musician with his harmonies, it is simply to highlight the differences." She thus builds her paintings much as musical compositions, where the notes are the colours and there are spaces in place of time. Geometric rigor opposes the exuberance of the pallet.
Therefore the artist expresses her colour sensitivity. She explores how they interact and reveals to the viewer their visual and emotional resonance. Sometimes shades of orange or green, sometimes a contrast between warm and cool colours, her lines or "rhythms" tend towards harmony and dynamics. They deliver all their gaiety and stimulate the imagination. Through them, Gomes reveals the energy inherent in the interplay of colours.
