José Manuel Castro López Biography

Spanish sculptor José Manuel Castro López carves granite and quartz rocks into fluid sculptural works. His illusory sculptures appear as if moulded from clay with soft, fabric like folds and creases, challenging the materiality of the mineral rocks used. The artist always seeks to incorporate the natural shape of each stone before carving, combining the rough, natural surface of his materials with the gentle allusions to different textures. Removing evidence of human intervention at the end of his practice makes the sculptures appear almost as if they have been eroded naturally into these unnatural shapes. His sculptures are unique explorations of texture, form and process.
