Martín Lagares (La Palma del Condado, 1976).
He is bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Cuenca. Somewhere he acquired a different conception of art; as a language, something to be explored.
Martín Lagares is an artist who works mainly with clay, terracotta, resin and bronze. Materials made of immanency; very different from the nobility of marble. Materials
with which he seeks to generate a strongly expressive creative tension in his sculptures.
His proposals move between the information of the matter and the instinct of the form. Someplace volume cannot stop being form because it is the limit of the void. This struggle between form and expressiveness is the aesthetic key of Martín Lagares, where there are no winners despite the victory of the expressive.
As a sculptor, he tries to inject into each work a wealth of feelings, emotions and reasoning, leaving a mark with expressive violence. All this is made with care of the form and search of the dimension. And, as already mentioned, his work is found in tension, in his commitment to the greatness of the unfinished, to the beauty inscribed in imperfection, to the inscrutable link between form and expression.
