Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland
The stage set for Alice in Wonderland was a big challenge, a wonderful project.
Working with Mª Antonia Mas, Ion Garnika and all the dancers was an amazing experience,
which I will never forget.

Posada de Tierra Santa / Boutique Hotel

I was commissioned to do some art pieces for the Boutique Hotel Posada de Tierra Santa.
It was a pleasure doing this work for a such a beautiful place like this. A restored building in Palma’s narrow streets of the old town full of history, which combines gothic architectural elements, with new technologies and charming staff.
Thank you for letting me be part of this project!

Behind the scene

There is always much work behind the scene of any ballet production. I had the chance to be part of this experience while creating the stage set for Diferencias a dance show performed at the Teatre Principal de Palma on October 2013. Being a dancer is not only a tough physical work which demands much discipline but also a beautiful way of living your passion and following your dreams. Thank you to all the dancers of the BJM (Ballet Jove Mallorca) for sharing their life force and energy, also for sharing their dreams and soul.
This post is dedicated to them.

An ordinary Tuesday

Examine for a moment an ordinary mind on an ordinary day. The mind receives a myriad impressions — trivial, fantastic, evanescent, or engraved with the sharpness of steel. From all sides they come, an incessant shower of innumerable atoms; and as they fall, as they shape themselves into the life of Monday or Tuesday, the accent falls differently from of old; the moment of importance came not here but there;…”

Virginia Woolf, 1919, Modern Fiction

Virginia Woolf at Monk's House, Sussex, date unknown

Virginia Woolf’s (Birtish writer 1882-1941)words have been a major inspiration for me while preparing my solo exhibit Knitting for Virginia Woolf. I have been reading her works and essays and I have been thinking of my myself as a women, of myself as a wife and mother, of myself as a creative being, of myself as a knitter, of myself as just myself…
But how terrible would it be just havinig myself. Thank you to all of you for being there and for sharing with me. I want to dedicate this exhibit to all of you.

Artists for Fundació Amazonia


This group exhibition in Xavier Fiol Gallery will last only
for a couple of days as it is a fundraising for Fundació Amazonia.
My piece is a papercut with a little fish and an old Mexican quote:
“Oh Pez, pececillo dorado,
¡Ten mucho cuidado!
Son muchas las redes y trampas que te tiende este mundo.”

“Oh Fish, little golden fish,
Be aware!
There are many nets and traps set for you in this world.”

Textures of Time

I confess, I do not believe in time.”
Vladimr Nabokov


Vladimir Nabokov: “I confess I do not believe in time. I like to fold my magic carpet, after use, in such a way as to superimpose one part of the pattern upon another. Let visitors trip. And the highest enjoyment of timelessness – in a landscape selected at random – is when I stand among rare butterflies and their food plants. This is ecstasy, and behind the ecstasy is something else, which is hard to explain. It is like a momentary vacuum into which rushes all that I love. A sense of oneness with sun and stone. A thrill of gratitude to whom it may concern – to the contrapuntal genius of human fate or to tender ghosts humoring a lucky mortal.”

Dandelion


Parachutes of dandelion in NY.
” I carry the place around the world in my heart but sometimes I try to shake it off in my dreams.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

Hand, paper & blade


Sharpness of blade is very important while doing a papercut. Some people use small scissors but you need to work with very fine paper. For specific works I use high-density polyethylene fiber sheets which make the tip of the blade become blunt a little faster than on regular paper. Therefore I have to change blades quite often.
It is amazing to see how the drawing on the paper transforms little by little into something… almost alive.

My paper dolls


I want to introduce you to Annekatrin, Lisa & Ana the paper dolls I was playing with at my childhood. I discovered these toys in a drawer at my parent’s summer house. While opening the boxes so many memories came back to me… I could remember perfectly all their outfits and looks. The funny thing is that I did not know about the existence of these dolls anymore, but if you look at some of my artwork they must have been somehow present in my subconscious…

Begining a new stage

This is the creative incubator and workshop space where I will work not only on my own but also through collabortive practice to experience together art, crafts, history, design or any cultural expression and to create a space where knowledge and innovation melt through creative process giving shape to something new.
I will keep you informed through this blog about events, workshops and more.
