" Futuro " , 2021 / Leiria  

“FUTURO”, word that titles this project, intends to reinforce the idea that Leiria is a city in movement and cultural development. My interest in movement, permanently regarded as a reference in previous works, comes from the need to explore the visual and perceptual barriers that arise from the human/time binomial, and consequently from the poetic and metaphorical relationships that result from this.  The present proposal features two passersby from different generations, who walk side by side in one direction. The scale relationship of the sculpture with the surrounding landscape marks the meeting between the audience and the proposal's key element - time - in its irregularities and spatio-temporal lines.

In short, it is from a dialogue between unique generations that the present sculptural proposal draws a timeline, which places us apron stage, of the movement itself, linking past, present and future in a single moment.

“Sopro” / 2020 

To celebrate the centenary of the birth of the sculptor Joaquim Correia, I made this sculpture that is on top of the Stephens Theater, Culture House at Marinha Grande.

It is a sculpture about three meters high, which pays homage to glass artisans. Having as reference the plaster aesthetics of the centenary sculptor, this work immediately calls for a new reading on a traditional technique in the image of the contemporary resources of the time in which we live.

In this, reference to nature is subtle, with the presence of a squirrel on the figure's shoulder. The artist's interest in nature and the essential resources that come from it are immediately the reason for much of his work.
