CRITICAL REVIEW


        His art covers the path from decorative sculpture to monumental sculpture solving in a unique manner the problem of the individuality the art object presents in the public space. The spatial forms he creates (most of the times from clay or sandstone) suggest a closely dialectics between the explosive tendency the volume manifests when it opens itself towards the exterior and the tendency it manifests for preserving the coherence of its form. The anthropomorphic allusion coexists with a geometrical spirit which does not depend on the degree of stylization, but on the ability to express the pure form.
