Mirta Meltzer 2019

Mirta Meltzer

 

 

In the sensation of the vacuum, I can feel infinity’s life.

I discover the sign of my identity,

the manner of structuring my space.

 

My own searching nature in permanent motion, takes me to another reality,

discovering in objects a transparency that brings me closer to the pure consistency of things, thus, a handcrafted paper, a feather or texture, suggest unveiling their secrets,

and I enjoy the challenge of developing them.
