The penguins


This work is an installation made up of 7 penguins of different sizes. I love penguins. I like to see flocks of penguins staggering around as if they were tubby men in their dinner jackets!!

The idea of making wire sculptures came from several coincidences: I have the privilege to use the studios in the Bellas Artes Faculty in Madrid because one of the professors was a patient of mine. About the time of the European crisis which hit Spain very hard, my professor was moved from the clay sculpting to the studio for metal sculpting. This suited me very well as the bronze figures were very expensive to make so I started to make wire figures which resulted very much cheaper.
