MERCI REBECCA WILSON
Most people would think that whatever praise I shower upon the work of Margarita Garcia Alonso is purely affected by our friendship, and that is incorrect. We have an immense bond, which has had its great and not so great moments like all relationships. Yet she has proven to be there right by my side when I’ve needed her most, and then other times when she has pulled my ears and told me I was wrong for doing this or that. Or the times when she has corrected my writings, given advice, or given me the gift of offering her amazing work for one of my projects.
Today, I am presenting to you her work, which climbs higher and higher on a daily basis. This morning she sent me a message with this link, and I am jumping in my seat with delight. I am a fan of her work, and have been a fan since we met. To describe the work of this amazing artist would take more than one paragraph. It would take hours to dissect the many roads she takes to give us a glimpse of what’s stored in her deepest shelves.
It is with great pleasure that I introduce the work of the talented Margarita Garcia Alonso, which is now available thru the prestigious Saatchi Gallery Online.
