What ?! An art gallery is showcasing four of my folds on their Facebook page! It's the first time ever a place like this shows some interest in my folds. I'm speechless!

And you know what ?! Two of them came from the monthly design challenge here in the forum:

This is my comment—which accompanies the four folds—translated to English:
Fellow members of the forum, It would be really helpful to me as an origamist if a few of you post a comment on any of the two Facebook posts. What would you say about the four folds I made (good and bad)? I would like to bring a little more attention to the posts; that's why I ask you this favor . It's perfectly OK to make the comment in English.Gerardo wrote:"Landscape", "Being Sumapaz", "The Mass Production of Members of Society" and "Sculpting a Crane" raise a question about folding paper: Can this traditional and mundane practice communicate something about nature, relationships, power, and the arts? The four pieces emerged from a concern regarding the potential of the folding practice to move away from representation and closer to the conceptual-metaphorical. They reveal the spell of paper, a material that has led me to express and form emotional ties with it, with folding, people, and the world in general.
What has happened is a very big deal to me as an origamist!
