"I create seeking to explore the visual relationships between the materials in creating new forms."

Ricardo-Arango

Ricardo Arango

Ricardo Arango uses various media in his sculptures such as ceramics, glass, marble and steel. Arango sometimes explores the combination of all these different elements in one piece. His work highlights the beauty of each material as he places the diverse materials in unique arrangements. There are soft edges, sharp points, rounded forms, vibrant colors and Arango maintains a steady commitment to composition throughout his process. He says, "The diverse qualities of materials excite my imagination such as the flexibility of clay, the rigidity of metal and the fluid nature of fired glass. I create seeking to explore the visual relationships between the materials in creating new forms." Inspired by the sculpture of Anthony Caro, Louise Nevelson, Omar Rayo and David Smith, Arango creates his own concepts with an underlying interest in uplifting the spirit of his audience.
