  • ABOUT THE ARTIST

Work by Ángel Flórez conveys pure movement. In fact, the theme of the small-scale pieces from this period in his career is enlightening. Baile eléctrico [Electric dance], Giro [Twist], Estrella fugaz [Shooting Star] or Bailando en espiral [Spiral Dancing] illustrate a clear inclination towards a type of sculpture that breathes life and willfully seeks to break away from the static restrictions to which a material like bronze is bound. This intentionality is clearly visible in one of his most contemporary pieces, Espiral, which upon simply touching it can be correlated with the purest style of compositions of Alexander Calder. With tremendously expressionist features, his volumes provoke glimpses of certain dreamlike traits and display curves, challenges, hyperbolic changes of direction that introduce rhythm to the creations and transform them into an imaginary representation of the journey of an object, from the trail they leave behind to their state as moving objects. From his workshop, established as a creative workspace, the sculptor experiments with different materials and projects and is established as a metal craftsman while skilfully shaping his individual and thought-provoking works of art.
