Álvaro Tirado Mantell


This polychrome terracotta sculpture wants to symbolize all the energy that does not fit inside one and that is forced to come out, hence its name chrysalis. The subject portrayed, completely deformed by the effort, opens his chest with his hands while expressing great effort on his face. The strength and expressiveness of this work make its meaning and intention very clear. These series of sculptures bring together the figurative and the abstract in the same work, having traces of analytical cubism in their final development. As you can see, from the same point of view the work shows different angles of the figure but if you look at it from different sides the work will change completely.
