Captivating Bronze…Sculptures of Jesus Curia Perez

We’re not sure what we’re more in love with, the lustrous patina of the bronze, or the fascinating subject matter and use of negative space of Jesus Curia Perez’ pieces.  The work of Mr. Perez is both thought-provoking and simply beautiful to look at.

Jesus Curia Perez Sculpture: “Downstairs”

From the 1stdibs website: “Working primarily in bronze, Perez removes space from conventionally fleshed out areas of the body; he abnormally lengthens limbs or substitutes geometric forms for clothing or torso. This manipulation of space makes the viewer intensely aware of how one inhabits and interacts with space. This most recent body of work is inspired by mythology.”
