This text is part of curatorship work I have done with work of Mireia Cifuentes in Virtual Gallery.
Mireia Cifuentes is a Catalonian painter born in La Seu d’Urgell, although she spent part of her childhood and teenage years in the city of Marbella (Malaga). Her interest and passion for the art world began with a series of trips through Europe and Asia she embarked on throughout the years, in a vital search and as a result of her desire to learn about other cultures.

In this post you can read an excerpt from the text I ‘ve written about Sadie Weis, featured artist of the week of Virtual Gallery and I would like to invite you all to stroll through her amazing gallery, that summarizing her production very well and allows us to explore her universe.
Sadie Weis is a multimedia artist working in the disciplines of Installation, Sculpture, Painting, Printmaking, and Video with influences of the spiritual, the occult, magic, and science fiction.
Her philosophy, and the inspiration for her artistic output, centers on a combination of these elements, which she uses to create alternative environments and sensations to transport the viewer to other worlds. These elements combine with the re-appropriation of relics and memories, placed in the context of organic processes such as the growth of crystals and natural decay.
