Alastair Smart described these sculptures as eerie, timeless and evocative. These works, it seems, could date back centuries, even millennia. They command those old-fashioned artistic virtues: awe, solemnity, and respect.
About the artist
Xavier Mascaró His works transport us to distant realities through a primordial and universal aesthetic. Fascinated by the iconography of ancient culture, Mascarò uses archaic figures to express the contradictions within the human soul. In his work, there is the echo of Pre-Columbian art history. Characterized by an encounter between material, form, and the psychology of the artist, his art uses heads, masks, boats, human and animal figures as symbolic representations.
