Marta Ramirez

“ INVISIBLE” transparency in everyday life.

Marta´s creative process is very much associated with nature, beauty, the harmony of shapes and especially the fascination of water as artistic language, allowing the conceptual, and abstract compositions in new techniques for the glass transformationand realised luminous sculptures. Her technique enables to reproduce drops of water, stalactites, ice, competing with nature in amost admirable and astonishing way. Every piece is individually made, one of a kind.

Transparency, which is intrinsic to glass or crystal as a medium gives Marta's works a different dimension. Glass gives a touch of the ethereal establishing artistic balance, proportion and unity in a composition meant to be perceived in the round and regulating the passage of light through the glass. The narrative of this work leads to explore imaginary landscapes of the invisible, the imperceptible.
because the speed does not allow us to see the dance of a drop of water falling and splashing because the smallness does not let us notice the intricate geography of a split tear.
