Exhibition José Resende

Year: 2010

The clear, elegant solution of tense and precarious joints readily distinguishes a sculpture by José Resende. The disparity of materials, the use of ties, knots and folds as agents of support, even the circumstantial position in the environment, all converge towards a positive configuration that testifies to the inexhaustible malleability of space, the essentially plastic availability of the world. And an intrinsic surprise factor reinforces the sensation of being in front of an uninhibited lyric, capable of assimilating all and any matter, arming situations as diverse and unforeseen as they are convincing, and immediately singularizing them, making them to speak unique. In short, to authenticate them through the power and grace of authorship.
