About Claudio Lorenzo Quintela

"Mi trabajo en la escultura discurre entre la figuración y la abstracción. Son caminos que acepto y que me plantean retos diferentes en su recorrido, el objetivo es mostrar una verdad que no se puede traducir sólo por belleza. Entender el volumen, el espacio, el material y sus características; la masa o el peso, su acabado, la textura o la pátina en el caso de las piezas cerámicas. Todo ello es parte del proceso, del diálogo que establezco con el material, no como un combate donde doblegarle, sino en una relación de igual a igual, donde si sabes escuchar lo que él te ofrece, puedes llevar la obra a buen puerto. Un lugar donde la pieza terminada se presenta con rotundidad, de manera inequívoca, con capacidad para sugerir otros espacios, otros volúmenes, con el poder de seguir indagando en las siguientes obras."


"My work in sculpture runs between figuration and abstraction. They are paths that I accept and that pose different challenges to me on their journey, the objective is to show a truth that cannot be translated only by beauty. Understand volume, space, material and its characteristics; the mass or weight, its finish, texture or patina in the case of ceramic pieces. All of this is part of the process, of the dialogue that I establish with the material, not as a fight to break it, but in a relationship of equals, where if you know how to listen to what it offers you, you can bring the work to a successful conclusion. A place where the finished piece is presented emphatically, unequivocally, with the capacity to suggest other spaces, other volumes, with the power to continue investigating the following works."
