Overview: Sculpture Infant Girl Air and Metal in Nickel

In this artwork, artist Miguel Guía turns to the famous theme of the Infant Girls by Velazquez. This time he is using CUBISM as a vehicle to simplify the forms and spaces, wrapping a desired outline with planes and lines... filling up the rythm of the forms and showing us the famous painting by Velazquez in a single glimpse. One time they asked Salvador Dalí: "what would be the thing you saved from the Prado Museum, if it burned and you would only be able to save one thing?"... and he responded: "The air and space which exists within the painting of the Infant Girls (Meninas) by Velazuez" This particular phrase inspired Miguel Guía when choosing a name for his sculpture.
