Jesús Curiá, sculptor, Spain
OMNIPRESENCE OF THE BODY
“Throughout modern history, the natural elegance of people from non-European cultures, inspired artists.
Jesús Curiá, while he has a western background and culture, has a pronounced interest in African and Asian cultures. This has lead him to the idea that in the long range future all the races will -in the end- melt into one. This ideal is one of the drivers of his oeuvre.
The sculptures of Jesús Curiá combine the figurative treatment of heads and hands with the abstract nature given to bodies. This is how he manages to focus the attention of the viewer on specific parts while viewing the piece as a whole.”
Excerpts and adaptation of the text written by Don Antonio Salcedo Miliani,Art Profesor at the University Rovira y Virgili (Barcelona. Spain) and Art Critic.
