Second Sara Miguel: “For me the universe is full of origins, of various processes. One of these origins and its process is a blank screen. Of these creative processes, two collections have sprung up here today, although not in its entirety: the Raízes collection and the organic collection. These collections and other works that accompany them, address something very deep, with a certain enigmatic character (the puzzles of life), almost as if the various structures and plans we know, such as social, psychological, political , physical, emotional, referring to a puzzle where several pieces fit, removing or reconfiguring. These two collections and other works lead us to a position of question: What is the essence? The immaterial? What is the source, the origin of feelings and emotions? Reason or emotion? They seek to express, after constant research of shapes and lines, points and colors, this something that is in a gross, pure state, ready to be transformed. And here we return to the beginning of the process, we return to origin. ”
