RELEASING CREATIVITY SERIES – GLASS SCULPTURE

STATEMENT

Merce Cañadell

This series of sculptural works explores how to illustrate the many different emotional states of the creative process, experienced in creating an artwork.

The primary use of the face and the hands enables me to portray a rich palette of charged emotions. Each work conveys a specific moment during the evolution of the constant search for inspiration until the final object is resolved. The works explore conveying amplified emotions of serenity, tenderness, confusion, disappointment or a conglomeration of more than one emotion; as an essential aspect of bringing clarity to the creative process.

The introduction of the crow in some compositions brings as well some symbolic meaning identify with creativity. When the crow call to us we have an instant flash of our authentic self. Nothing escapes to his sight, both in the physical and metaphysical realm.

Up until this time I have focused primarily in resolving the work in glass but it is my intention for the majority of the final works to be a combination of clay or metal and glass so as to exploit the nature to the materials themselves in creating emotionally charges works.
