Ana Ruiz Agüí seeks through conceptual and abstract sculpture to manifest the beauty of the stone, the dynamics of the curves and the contrasts between different textures. She wants to create sculpture with character, without getting lost in detail, allowing the material to speak for itself and to breathe. She is looking for a synthesis of complexity with cadence and harmony.
Her new collection is about the concept of Chrysalis. It attracts the artist because it is associated with her own personal experience, with the internal transformation in which she finds herself now.
Through the forms of chrysalises in stone she wants to represent those internal spaces in which everything is possible, the refuge of something changing and beautiful that wants to emerge.
