Gabriela Juárez • Espejo de Agua (Water Mirror), 2018 Serigraph
Water is a mirror where the soul is reflected when we look at us; where our melancholy, pain, passion and love are reflected as Narciso noted it. Water captures a reality that can be trapped, destroyed, distorted with only a slight vibration, with a little movement, with the breath of the wind, falling another drop of water. Water catches our gaze, captivates our hope, makes us think, sigh, dream as do the sailors adrift. Water is mysterious in its depths as a fertile wound, in which we are formed within water, we grow up being water, and water we are.
