  • ABOUT THE ARTIST

The sculptor by trade and vocation exceptionally combines a unique aesthetic with solid theoretical foundations. He takes inspiration from a wide range of sources to which he leaves behind his personal mark. His work is not only pleasing to the eye but also encourages the observer to make geometric reflections, to recall old myths and of course dream...


Elena Mª Mesonero Gómez


With academic training, his small-scale sculptures explicitly show geometric experimentation of volumes and balance in composition. In these pieces, recently released in the 21st century, Enrique Mesonero introduces variations in the original series entitled 'Discurso sobre el volumen cúbico'[Discourse on Cubic Volume], 'Isis', and 'El Mundo de Alicia' [Alicia's World] and explores the possibilities of bronze using patinas, different tones and finishes that show a certain personal inclination towards formal perfection. The composition of his sculptures, which are designed to be observed from all possible angles, thus being able to appreciate the conceptual groundwork, at times seems to be inspired on organic matter. With only several minutes of reflection, the observer is met with an evocative harmony that encourages them to wonder what lies beyond.
