Our Sculptors

Alvaro Soler-Arpa MRSS

Working with bones over the last 7 years has been a way to get in full contact with nature and anatomy. But also a way of exploring and getting deeper into terms like life, death, or evolution".

I like the idea of the artisan becoming the artist. The artisan has attained certain skills to which has dedicated many hours of mechanical work. He is rooted in a very specific knowledge of his craft, which evolves and gives strength to his artwork. This is achieved through discipline in his work. I regard the artist as someone explosive and impulsive in terms of creativity but also introspective, patient, and skilled while working.

I enjoy my work as something coming from inside of me. I consider drawing to be the key tool in my creations. Much of the time in my work the concept is related to and ruled by the line. I give significant importance to the “physical” intention of the form and line.

I view nature as magic in its fullest capacity. Nature can do miracles when medicine and technology cannot. Because of this, I consider nature as my main source of inspiration separate from man and his technological achievements.
