Band Installation & Performance detail

– For me sculpting is the art of a three-dimensional brushstroke –. Each gestual of the three-dimensional brushstroke is registered during the process of adding layers of beeswax to the artwork’s conception. I increase my sculpture’s volume by focusing on the angles that need resistance establishing a balance with aesthetic tension. The shape of the sculpture is congruent to my instruments of work, my hands; arm; forearm; even my fingertips. An element of interference is sometimes glass, which I set on the wax. Metal replaces this media through the technique of lost-wax- casting. A dialogue is created and it also expresses the rhythmic and chromatic interferences in this organic shape – harmoniously –.
