Nature is beautiful. We can find beauty in the snowflake shapes, the spiral of the sea snails, the geometric shape of minerals, the arrangement of leaves on a stem, the pine cone's bracts,...but behind the beauty of these natural elements is the mathematical Fibonacci sequence. It’s a succession of numbers which the Golden ratio drevives from. Therefore, nature is beautiful because it follows that proportion or our attraction for the ordered forms that follow this sequence goes beyond of what we can explain?
I have always felt attracted to the sea, it makes me feel happiness, admiration, fascination, respect and a mixture of fear and deep calm. I don’t know if this attraction is due to the child memories I have there or that my mind needs these feelings that it transmits to me... the movement of the waves, the smell of salt, the breeze on the skin and walkings along the beach early in the morning, with your feet under crystalline water with small fishes swiming between your legs while you pick up shells and sea snails... This collection is one of the most personal I've done and for this reason it's called Marta.
Part of the benefits of this Marta Collection will go to Cram, a foundation for the conservation and recovery of marine animals, that since 1994 have been working to protect the marine environment and all species that live in the Mediterranean.
