Marta Armada´s (Vigo,1967) present work, is like a situational map where the viewer can walk through places, moments and situations where the author distills her experiences showing us her personal vision of the micro world she reflects in her work.

In these we can appreciate some constant themes that indicate the keys of her evolution and her way of understanding life. As if not wanting to hide anything, she speaks to us of her travels, the sea, the silence, the human being, as well as the paint, the potter´s wheel , sculpture and design.

I don´t think this could be any other way in an artist where the seeking, honesty and healthy stubbornness are ingredients of a potion that Marta Armada would drink every morning.
