MATERIALS

The nobility, durability and flexibility of bronze have been some of the qualities the artist has chosen.

Bronze allows him to make shapes that could not be made with any other material and allows him to lengthen, bend and weld his figures in sometimes impossible balancing positions.

The colors of his patinas and the rough texture used in his finishes are essential to give more intensity of expression to his work with a certain drama without abandoning this austere and refined style.

Despite the hardness and weight of the material, his sculptures offer a feeling of lightness and weightlessness.
