JULIA MARIA
LOPEZ MESA

To open or not to open?
There is tension in here. In this tension, there is a double opening, through the painting an through the body that plays and slides at the surface of the painting. The zipper becomes a threshold between the visible and the invisible. Between reserve and reveal, it brings about a smile.

Ziiiiiiiiiiip, a sound in expansion. And through the movement of the body the soul opens to matter for a moment.
