12 Sep Back and Forth exhibit (De aquí para allá)
Textile artist Maria Muñoz exhibits her artistic creations at Mad is Mad Gallery in the Chueca neighborhood of Madrid.
From September 16 until October 20 it is possible to visit in Pelayo street, in the popular neighborhood of Chueca, the individual exhibit of textile artist Maria Muñoz, where are presented her latest works under the title “Back and Forth”, inspired by the song Cada loco con su tema composed by her friend Papu; a song which was listened constantly in the realization of these art pieces.
The sample is composed from a main work, which gives name to the exhibit and which will later cross the Atlantic to travel to Montevideo, Uruguay, where it has been presented for the WTA VII Bienial World Textile Art after being selected as representative of Spain in this specific cultural event.
In the Madrid exhibit the artist presents her latest creations which transport us to that personal world so characteristic of her in which, trapped by spider webs, characters wander without a defined course, that suggests the different ways of living of each one of us, as well as paintings of small and medium format in which the same motif is recreated and working with materials that are already habitual in her works: silk threads, tea paper bags printed with ink and other diverse vegetal materials.
As a novelty Maria Muñoz presents in this ocasion a jewelry collection denominated “Emptyness” in which she has been working lately expanding her artistic vision to this new field, as, according to the artist, art should be as well another element to incorporate to the everyday life, which suggests in such a creative person like her a new and attractive challenge. For that she has composed a delicate collection of earings, brooches and bracelets for which she has used jacaranda seeds, silk threads and silver clad in gold, that can be acquired directly at the Mad is Mad Gallery as long as the exhibit is on.
