With a aptitude for dramatic contortions of the human physique, Spanish artist Isabel Miramontes (beforehand) casts elongated limbs and impossibly stretched torsos in bronze. A lot of her elegant sculptures depict androgynous figures with no discernable gender or clothes who’re caught within the midst of motion.  Expressive and exaggerated, the figures evoke the distinct stress between corporeal limitation and liberation.

In “Come On,” for instance, one topic makes an attempt to drag one other from their collapsed place on the ground, whereas different works characteristic characters with segmented our bodies or heads connected to an higher arm moderately than a neck. The latter emphasizes the ephemeral facets of each movement and the flesh, displaying that every will finally disappear into reminiscence.
