Fractured bronze and surreal sculptures
Currently available at the gallery
The sculptures that Isabel Miramontes creates are all about emotion and purity of the lines.
Isabel Miramontes is a contemporary Spanish artist living and working in Belgium. In 1994 she decided to dedicate herself to sculpture when meeting with Jacob Hasbún in his studio. Space is the key component of Isabel’s work. The body posture and the living essence of a human are essential aspects in her creations. Struck by a silhouette, a movement, a symbol, a thought, she translates into her unique visual language. Isabel Miramontes is known for her bronze sculptures, outdoors monumental ones as well as smaller ones that can be found at our gallery in Honfleur.
According to the artist a sculpture is not a block into which she carves to give it form, but it’s rather a void that the artist gives substance to. The visual language of Isabel Miramontes represents the human being in all the ambiguity of its power and frailty, its confinement and yearning for liberty, its dreams and triumphs.
