  • ABOUT THE ARTIST

"The essence of my sculptural work remains enclosed, with openings to enter from the outside... The public can touch, observe, search with their hands, smell and hear". The work by Jesús García Lorente is made to be shared and understood in terms of a very simple code: personal interpretation but always from a point of view in line with nature.


This explains why he works with all types of materials, although he currently focuses on stone to convey "that feeling of telluric power, of earth extraction, of overwhelming weight..." In his era of bronze sculpture, this pressure can be observed in pieces such as La Piedra [The Rock], which represents perfection, almost like a symbol, according to the artist himself.


Analysed yet equipped with deep expressiveness that is only possible through inspiration, García Lorente makes many sculptural drafts in scaled stone, paper, drawings and photos. With his works he aims to open a dialogue by playing with shapes and the posture of the human body... By doing so, his sculptures seem to scream, complain, talk, address the observer through abstract concepts, schematic figuration, cubic shapes and emptiness, something he intentionally seeks that is essential in his creative process.
