Sculpture by Ricardo Puémape

“A beautiful sculpture is the result of a complete interaction between the sculptor and the medium. The initial shape of the medium, its size, color, texture, its “strengths” have to be allowed to influence the subject matter and its final appearance. The result should reflect respect for the medium and a willingness to explore its limits. The inherent “flavour” of the medium will be used to its fullest potential”.
