metal works – 2005-2011

“When she was a little girl, Marta Santos dreamt about  finding little crystal sculptures on the sand of a beach. Since then she has made her dream a reality. Through the materials she uses (wood, metal, tow, fiber, cords, plastic) she reveals and creates shapes like treasures. She is not anymore the little girl that collects shells, stones or driftwood. She is a woman that, with the simplicity of a child and the wounds of an adult, unveils her own soul with proposals that invite you to look and reflect.”
