I made this sculpture back in 2001; having spent the last 15 years largely unnoticed and since I had some free time I decided to remake it. The first version is based on a statue that appeared in “Tintin in the Congo”
A final effort to finish Detrás de los Cerros: A sculpture group for the Nursing Home of Oskarslund, in Karlstad.
I have often preferred to act before thinking and correct my mistakes along the way, but in this piece the error margin had to be kept to a minimum. I was forced to device a method and follow it.
And after many sleepless nights and cold sweats, with the valuable help of many people I managed to finish it, also the weather collaborated: it was only bellow freezing early in the morning.
The entire process is documented here
After two weeks almost nonstop work i just finished the six stone sculptures that form part of “Detrás de los Cerros”, a commission for the city of Karlstad
Centro Internacional de Escultura, Odrinhas September 2015
From start to finish, “El Sueño” black granite from India, a comission for Brf Revskär, Farsta
