The body posture and the living spirit are essential aspects of Isabel Miramontes‘s modern human figures sculptures. The bronze sculptures you are about to see, are truly unique. The human figure is the true protagonist, with silhouettes transforming and deforming, which results in strange and novel creations!
Space is one of the key components of Isabel’s work. Struck by a silhouette, a movement, a symbol, a thought, Miramontes translates into her unique visual language. She explores new body shapes and shares her vision of the world, through strips and cut silhouettes that capture a movement, a feeling.
The Spanish sculptor, Isabel Miramontes was born in Santiago de Compostella (Spain), but it was in Belgium, Brussels, that the artist grew up and did her studies, earning a diploma in Fine Arts at the Institut Sainte Marie.
The artist is known, not only for her bronze sculptures but also for her monumental outdoors. Isabel’s works, more or less realistic, explore the concept of apparent emptiness. To Isabel, the sculpture is not a piece of material to which one gives shape; it is a void to which the artist provides texture.
Isabel Miramontes enters the sensitive dimension of art with her bronze sculptures, expressing her own emotions and the ambiguity of the human being: his need for isolation and his freedom, his strength and his fragility, his dreams, and achievements.
Her latest artworks, unique bronze sculptures, fragmented and segmented, evoke a sense of movement and communicate the mood of the human psyche. The artist, fascinated by “poses and impressions”, creates works that connect drama, abandonment, and tension, which collect within themselves all the weight of emotions, feelings, of humanity.
