Is Art the human capacity that is able to transfer the perceptions of the Soul to the senses?

When we open our eyes, our mind and perceptions to a sculpture we enter into an intimate space; a path that leads us to the emptiness of the mind to touch our deepest being. It is not necessary to understand, only to feel the life that the work of art has. It is a profound and personal experience.

The responsibility of the public space

One of characteristics of a public sculpture is usually its size, but often there is a confusion between being monumental and being great. Another key factor is that it is a work that will be seen 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year; that is, there will be sun, rain, environmental changes, etc. I believe that each public or private space requires an specific work that is thought of, felt and built specifically for that place.

Sculptor of poems

I have the feeling , since long ago, and I believe that I make sculptures because, as a poet, I would be floating around all day. That is why all my sculptures have a poem. Transforming hard steel into delicate, suggestive, light shapes, full of tenderness is my challenge. The steel does not seem to weigh; the masses are lost in lines, in spaces of emptiness that only lead us to nothing, inside and outside.

Social responsibility

Living in a society has awakened my social commitment: to contribute something to this world selflessly.
That is how I have developed two programs:

“Seeds of Peace, through the Seeds of Peace foundation for the world”. In 2009 I was able to create a technique that allows the ability to end Bullying, school absenteeism and generates an increase in school performance. This technique is manifested in the book “Seeds of Peace”, and in the dozens of conferences and workshops that I teach in Europe and America in Universities, High schools, parts associations, etc.

The second one, is with the program © EWA, which aims to turn the electric car

TEO SAN JOSÉ / STATEMENT

Mi sculptural work is developed from the desire to create spaces for dialogue. The public and monumental work that I carry out has a strong intention to have a place in people´s daily lives.
In my case, the sculptures do not wait in the standard exhibition spaces, they are the ones that go out to meet their own place and its own spectators. The viewer surrounds the work, crosses it, raises and lowes the head or moves away from it. If the referente point is variable, so is the work itself. This transformation without change is one of the fundamental balances that I want
in my projects.

Tension as a balance between concepts is present in all aspects of the work. The use of steel as a material exposes a weight, a solidity. The fact of curving and stylizing its forms provides a condition of lightness. It is this relationship between elements that interests me. From a language far from representation, I look for a syntetic in the meanings. That expression and contentment shake hands. In my work, the space crosses itself to compose new places. The
planes are superimposed without losing their individual quality, to build dimensions that exceed them, where the material becomes inmaterial, and the opaque can be transparent. Emptiness and material complement each other, changing our eyes, making new interpretations, staying always in motion.

Dynamic balance is essential to me when considering new projects. The essential idea that my work moves within the scope of a dynamic and peaceful visual art at the same time, becomes day by day more important. Working from this position allows me to build mental spaces where intuition and subjective view have an important value.
