Printed and cut paper.

Paper, that troubled medium that was born for human hands to leave their traces in the form of graphics that would eventually become languages ??to give us the best poems or the most beautiful ideas about how life should be in this world.

Paper, which in the hands of visual artists has ceased to be a support for the ideograms, which later became letters, today occupies a leading role and is the white is called to that space that surprises us every time with its magic expression. A void that is not such, to void that is a whole.

The role in Sara Slipchinsky's work is made up of fine threads running through space in the most labyrinthine directions: up / down, forward / backward, penetration / expulsion and thus a long and complex classification of the actions that celebrate their works. Suddenly in the middle of that exercise of recording without acids, or gouges and as if they were plows that leave their grooves in the paper, they perceive between the white fine filaments that put us in front of a beautiful visual poem that expresses fantastic feelings and that lead us to dream surreal paradises. Other times it will be a red interfering with the white.

They will always be subtle and poetic interferences. In front of Sara's white papers there is nothing left to look at and like to hypnosis to let ourselves be carried away in the middle of her labyrinths and lose ourselves in the target ... so to the infinite. - Juan Carlos Romero
