Sculpturesite Gallery showcases new works by Emil Alzamora, along with the latest video in the series Inside the Sculptor’s Studio, featuring the artist at work. Emil Alzamora gave Sculpturesite an exclusive look into his intriguing creative process. Working as a full time sculptor since 2001, Alzamora explores the human figure in a variety of novel ways.
“In Alzamora’s work,” writes Brienne Walsh in Curiator.com, “viewers can experience strange, fantastic things happening to other bodies, and leave assured that nothing will happen to our own. There’s a pleasure in the dark undertones.” There is an evident fascination with strange distortions in Alzamora’s sculptures; not entirely as a creepy invitation to walk on the wild side, but as a deep exploration of what it means to be human.
One cannot describe Emil Alzamora’s work without mentioning his love of materials and processes. He considers his studio his private laboratory, where he pushes chemistry and physics to extremes. Although very much steeped in the conceptual, and in the play zone while in his studio, Alzamora is always concerned with a profound sense of aesthetics. This is what creates multiple layers of appreciation, and ultimately makes his work so appealing.
