  • Harmony of Lorenzo Quinn executed by Capa
    23/11/2013

    The sculpture titled Harmony, work of Lorenzo Quinn and made and installed by the Capa Foundry at Ivan Mañero’s clinic, was opened yesterday with the other installations from Sant Cugat del Vallès.

    The piece that chairs the medical-aesthetic complex, consists of a man made of aluminum and a woman in bronze on a yin-yang symbol made of baked lacquered aluminum. The whole measures 3 meters high.

     

    Harmony used taijitu symbology, so recurrent in Lorenzo Quinn’s works, evoking aspects of Taoist philosophy and the intrinsic balance found in all the elements thanks to the complementarity of opposites that, in this case, applies to relationships. In the author's words "every relationship is the encounter of two worlds becoming one”.

    The terracotta mount is untold, like the iron foundries as well. The photograph, which is currently very much appealing to the valencian artist, is a projection of his own sculptural world, where human elements coexist with others that are purely urban. Sculptures of warriors are in charge of guarding the Miquel Navarro’s universe.

    Will celebrate 50 years of the inauguration in Santiago de Chile of the equestrian sculpture of Enrique Pérez Comendador, the first great monumental work made by Eduardo Capa.

    Soon be fulfilled the 50th anniversary of the inauguration in Santiago de Chile of sculpture to Extremadura conqueror, Pedro de Valdivia. This work of Enrique Pérez Comendador, opened in July 1963, originally stood in the Cerro Santa Lucia but was changed to place several times before they fix his current position in the Plaza de Armas.

     

    This is the first major monumental sculpture made by Eduardo Capa. Works began in Coca, and recently has come to light a photographic material documenting the work done and taking us back to the origins of Capa Foundry before moving to Arganda del Rey. It will be the need for larger plant to finish the equestrian sculpture of Enrique Pérez Comendador the reason that motivates the change of the Foundry to Arganda where the work of art will be finally finished in the spring of 1963.

     

    At present the Capa Foundry remains in this same locality in more modern facilities but always following the spirit of its creator.
