Enric Mestre , born 1936 in Valnecia Spain, is one of the masters that helped pave the way to consolidate the artification of the ceramic medium. Through dedication and commitment Mestre has pushed the technical boundaries of this demanding yet humble material, and helped elevate it to a sculptural art form in its own right. As one of the important artists of the Spanish school, his name is mentioned in the same breath as figures such as Jorge Oteiza and Eduardo Chillida.
His sculptural objects often might seem sober but have a great poetic force that channels the gaze of the beholder. Trained in Fine Arts as a painter, his use of colour is sparse but precise, intentional and well balanced. His work invites thought and contemplation. Enric Mestre, a studier of space and volumes, has made his mark on the sculpture of the twentieth century and beyond. This series is a continuation of a process that started in 2007 with a single work (now in a private collection) and celebrates the master, showcasing his wide-ranging and complex oeuvre.
