  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Work on sculpture, I introduced polychromy as a way to add more epidermal information about the models represented. I polychrome them with egg paint, egg yolk mix as a binder, with pigment and water as a solvent, which I prepare myself. It is a traditional technique of painting sculpture, and painting on wood, which results in a watercolor painting with relief, which makes the step between work with volume and the pictorial take place in a subtle way, without leaps and bounds. .

    Within the sculpture also, I have been introduced in the wood carving, of lime (soft, without knots). Direct carving, without clay model and, like the rest, direct from the natural one. One of these polychrome carvings gave me the Vila Casas Sculpture Foundation award in 2012.

Javier Garcés

Spain Born in: 1959

Since 1977, I have always had a space in which I could continuously develop my passion, which was initially for painting. Later I did fine arts at the Sant Jordi Faculty, at the University of Barcelona, where I graduated in 1985 with a degree in sculpture.

Immediately, I went into the figurative sculpture of iron with an iron plate, which I did until I got a grant from Delfina Studios, for which I could enjoy a year in London and where I worked between 1989-90.

It is in London that I did the first work of the natural thing and gave it by finished work, bypassing me all the norms, that locally, we understand here are of contemporary art; and where I started to work the mud, which by ductility led me to La Bisbal, and has been with me until now.Continuing my work at La Bisbal, I began to take drawing classes that, with a certain degree of continuity, I have been doing, both for my financial aid and for concepts applied to my work from different perspectives. .
