Corazón Salvaje exhibition in Spain

From 24 March to 25 June 2023, Manuela Castro Martins will be exhibiting her glass art at Museo de Arte do Vidrio de Alcorcón (MAVA) in Madrid, Spain.

The ‘Corazón Salvaje’ (meaning Wild at Heart) exhibition comprises 17 glass works, dating from 2013 to the present, grouped into different series. ‘Rosáceas’, are six pieces inspired by the rose windows of Gothic architecture. They are made from brightly coloured fused glass, described by the artist as ‘fragile and beautiful, like lace’.

The ‘Impossible Jars’ series is made with metallic mesh and strung glass fragments, creating objects reminiscent of jars that have lost their main function as containers.

 ‘Don’t touch me’ are works made with metal and glass, aggressive and hostile to the touch but with great plastic power.

The piece ‘Wild at heart’ dates from 2016 and is inspired by the David Lynch film ‘Wild at Heart’.

Manuela’s studio is in the Portuguese town of Caminha, in Viana do Castelo, at the mouth of the Miño river in northern Portugal.

See more of Manuela’s work via her website.

MAVA glass museum is at Av. los Castillos, 28925 Alcorcón, Madrid, Spain. Find out more via the website.
