Jaume Plensa – sculpting styles

Plesna make monumental sculpture witch is usually figurative or of just a face. His faces are usual manipulated subtly in some way, witch he does using 3d modelling software. His work often is made out of mesh and is transparent and i feel resonates with my digital work. He also works with stone and other more substantial materials and although his scale is totally different to what I am interested in at the moment, the subtlety of his manipulations to his faces is something I would like to explore.

In a 2019 article discussing his work Plesna describes being interested in transients and the intangible (the spirit) witch he materialises through his sculpture. I think the way he achieves other worldliness through subtle manipulations could be something i could use in my work, as the digital nets I am making seem to lend themselves so well the the surreal.

It is also interesting to look at Plesna’s work on paper. There is a clear relationship between his 2d and 3d work, witch is something I am trying to achieve in my work.
