About This Work

Sculpture that I recently made is an effect of my research in Modernism and Aztecs first sculpture. I used York stone for the first time, which I found to be a softer stone than marble, which metaphorically represents our fragile society. I enjoyed working with the York Stone. It allowed me to focus on textures, light and shadow during the process of carving in this type of stone. I did not want to focus on so many details or proportion as I was sculpting from the inspiration from Aztec sculptures usually carved with simplicity with deep meaning. My sculpture of a primitive thinker is a simply a confrontation with myself at present and a personal expression. Reflecting on many questions regards to art, sculpture, painting and other mediums that portray our society as a whole. One is sure that it is my personal expression my point of view.
