German Arzate Escultor

Germán Arzate-Insight

Airport Cancun, Mexico

Insight

Through sculpture I have found a way to express myself and be able to represent ideas, dreams and emotions in any material that my hands touch. The sensation of transforming a material into an idea is one of the most exciting things in my life. Seeing that a work takes form to transcend time, makes me an accomplice of art itself.

Everything in the universe is dual. My proposal in art transmits that duality, being the essence of my perception, an outburst of images and ideas that make up my work as an explosion of fantastic realism.

I walk life through dreams, romance, eroticism and mysticism, extracting and enjoying moments transformed into bronze, art and satisfaction.

Insight

In these bronze sculptures, love is a complex word, because more than a simple word, it is a feeling, an emotion, something that is neither tangible nor palpable, is something that simply you can feel or not. Love has also been mentioned in an infinity of artistic questions, not only in bronze sculptures, but also in painting, poetry and literature; it is a concept that is always linked to something that goes in the shadow and in the duality that also means living the lack of love.

When you make a bronze sculpture, you put love on it, you bring presence to your presence, you deliver the emotions and the feeling that is present, the love of art, the time you spend, art is a way that makes you able to submerge, express, and feel passion. Everything is there embodied in the bronze sculptures I make. You feel a particular love, because this bronze sculpture was part of your essence, it is there and you created it, you left a legacy.

Here comes the artist watching another artist feel love over things, the artist takes a flower, caresses it and feels its temperature, its texture, its shape and its color.

Insight

 

Self-taught Mexican sculptor artist. From an early age he had the need to create, using materials that were available in his environment (wire, plasticine, paint, plaster, and wood, among others).

Since the beginning of his work, the fusion of two figures, elements or concepts, has been a constant that always remains, like its dual conception of the world, day and night, the masculine and the feminine, the mystical and the earthly, love and lack of love, human nature and animal. Arzate has developed an own art proposal, where the fascination for the duality in the erotic, mystical, and natural aspects of the human being stands out.
