I had the pleasure to meet Mallorcan artist Amparo Sard last week, she was the guest artist at the farewell event for Gallery Ferran Cano in Palma.

She employs the most poetic and effective technique to express human confinement: void on white. Through thousands of hand perforations, Sard enhances the conflicts and anguish caused by indecision.

Sard’s artwork can be found in the collections of MoMa, New York; Guggenheim, New York; West Collection, Philadelphia; and Deutsche Bank Berlin. She lives and works in Mallorca.
