Born in Barcelona, 1948, from 1986 work as professor of sculpture in the Faculty of Fine Arts of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. My present works are sculptures in marble and bronze, as well as oil paintings and graphite on paper.Art is the place to develop my process of being in the world I live. Art is not only a way to define and explain what I am, but also a means of self-discovery, in an effort to express my inner voice, sometimes surprising, often with determination. Art is the result of an experience whose meaning is deeper than the sum of individual parts, which happens when the building contains a sufficient level of symbolic meaning, metaphorical or allegorical. My art is oriented toward universal ideas about the landscape. For me, the creative process that has as its starting point the experimentation of form, is a challenge I face with curiosity. When I prepare to run a play I'm not sure exactly what I do, or how it can evolve my work, I never know, when I start, how will my finished piece.…Read More
In my first pieces of sculpture I recognize to be indebted to Brancusi, with its oval marble forms. Nevertheless my forms did not have a reference to human heads, or to the origin of the life, but its concept, as abstract forms, was the attention to on the attrition and the hollowness of the subject as attempts to explore the interior of closed and pure form. The best way of understanding its aesthetic pleasure was not only feeling the form but carving it in marble.
Ten years later I dropped the ovoid forms and the marble as material, and began to work with steel. My interest in metal was completed ten years later, taken by the curiosity between architecture and its relation with sculpture, a subject that was brought up on a doctorate’s course that I taught at University.
In my metal works during the beginning of the 90´s, I used welded steel as means to investigate the language of the rationalist forms of architecture and the scale of architecture taken to the sculpture of geometric forms, hence the result of the pieces became architectonic metaphors. When working with the scale of sculpture and moving from an intimate dimension to a monumental one, I began to ask myself about the context where the piece had been placed because of its dimension, to the street, competing with its surroundings, and also then creating ephemeral installations. My abstract, present images, of oval forms, gather Brancusi’s influence from a post-minimalist view and deals with the same concept in several media (painting, sculpture, and drawing). This variety of languages makes the objects relate to each other and to gain different experiences from that dialogue enriching them into a wider range of associations.…Read More
