    26/11/2008

    The galleries of Capa Esculturas, in Madrid and Brussels, are characterized by their spreading work of the contemporary Spanish sculpture. They contribute to make the talent of young artists to abandon the anonymity and increase their spreading in the current artistic outlook.

    The permanent exhibition, composed by more than a hundred works, is the cornerstone of Capa Esculturas. In a parallel way to this main project, the galleries organize temporary exhibitions, an essential complement of their current sculpture spreading work.

    The gallery in Madrid (Claudio Coello, 19) inaugurated last 21st November 'Invierno 08' (Winter 08), a collective exhibition which can be seen until the next 28th January. In this exhibition there are metal pieces and works made by the most avant-garde techniques, such as the digital video-animation or the photography imprint in aluminium. The exhibition also shows works made in Calatorao stone and alabaster.

    Sculpture's present and future

    The collective exhibition 'Invierno 08' (Winter 08) joins works of the artists Emilio Velilla, Natalia Pintado, Pedro Fuentes, Ana Olano, Fanny Galera, Santiago López and Julio Murciego. Their works make a sculptural puzzle which represents the present and the future of this artistic discipline.

    Emilio Velilla presents 'Maniatado' (Hands-tied) and 'Equinocio' (Equinox), two works made in bronze from his enigmatic serie 'El sueño de la razón' (Reason's Dream). In 'Espacio Plutón' (Pluto Space), Natalia Pintado makes honour to the disappear planet through a digital vide-animation and collages. Pedro Fuentes, catches little moments which invite us to the reflection in 'En Marcha (Nueva York)' (Let's go (New York)), silk-screen printing in aluminium.

    In 'Rotación 2' (Rotation 2), the young Ana Olano, shows a sculpture in alabaster and Calatorao stone, while Fanny Galera bets for the visual poetry in 'Tendidos' (Lying Down) and 'Platos sucios' (Dirty Plates). Santiago López joins classicism and comtemporaneity in his 'Homenaje a Oteiza' (In honour of Oteiza) and Julio Murciego puts the finale of the collective show with 'Mujer alargada' (Elongated Woman), a work made in bronze and steel which represents the visual poetry.
