"In a sensual and virile manner my sculptures represent these two symbols of stability and conquest."
"I entered into contact with ceramics at the age of 10 in Montevideo, Uruguay, where I came together with various artists, especially Armando Gonzales, who is considered the most established sculptor in the city. I studied at the Applied Arts School and participated in the Union of Contemporary Fine Artists of Montevideo in 1972.
"I came to Brazil in 1978 and now I have lived more time here than in my own native land. For 20 years I have been concentrating on animal figures, such as the bull and the horse, which I have known well since my youth living on ranches on the Uruguayan border. I have investigated their forms and simplified them, creating a singular style.
"The horse is elegant; it possesses many curves, it is restless and intimately linked to the story of human civilization. The bull is a symbol of strength and work, essential to the establishment of humankind on the earth. In a sensual and virile manner my sculptures represent these two symbols of stability and conquest.
"Throughout my career I have participated in diverse gallery exhibitions, such as the Mosaic and Fine Arts Galleries, a permanent exhibition in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, at the Caixa Cultural Gallery in 1988 in Rio de Janeiro, and I was even selected to participate in the first edition of the international showing '2000 Reasons to Love the Earth,' promoted by the 2000 Foundation of Holland."
