about
sculpture


Sculpture defines Mercè Cañadell’s artistic practice. Working in different media, most of her work is figurative. It is located in some Greco-Roman mythological archetypes that are close to her Spanish background, but also integrating elements of Celtic mythology and literature as a source of inspiration. Similar elements from both cultures from which she has taken themes that have being reinterpreted to bring new meaning. In particular, the human figure, horses and bulls are explored in her current work. Sculpture of the ancient Mediterranean cultures has been a big influence from which she has developed technical skills and her own artistic language.

Even though Cañadell has previously worked with wax, bronze and carved wood as well as ceramics, her overall work is clearly informed by a formal training in sculpture. The use of other materials and the learning of other technical skills have been added to create a new body of work and this is something that appeals to her.
