MADEIRA E BORRACHA
Base – quadrado de madeira com 25 cm de lado
Abstratizante, geometric, sculpture with three plates of triangular and a rectangular wood mounted on a central pole which protrude two rubber balls of not regular spiky look.
The sculptural structure develops in three planes of space and form dihedral angles more or less acute ridges which are variable depending on the viewing angle permitting different readings according to the perspective of the observer.
The anthropomorphic and symbolic approach of the sculpture suggests a preacher.
In its geometric solidity proclaims a herald public message of its truth!
Sobre a peça escultórica
Escultura abstratizante, geomética, com três placas de madeira triangulares e uma rectangular montadas numa coluna central em que sobressaem duas esferas de borracha de aspecto eriçado e não regular.
A estrutura escultórica desenvolve-se em três planos do espaço, formando ângulos diedros e saliências mais ou menos agudas que são variáveis consoante o ângulo de observação permitindo leituras diversas de acordo com a perspectiva do observador.
A aproximação antropomórfica e simbólica da escultura sugere um Pregador. Na sua solidez geométrica proclama, como um arauto, a mensagem pública da sua verdade!
