About The Artwork

This sculpture, belonging to the Ausencias series, is made of steel, with a black blued finish, offering a visual and conceptual exploration of space and form. The work is characterized by its interaction between the solid volume and the empty spaces created by the selective elimination of material, establishing a balance between presence and absence. The bluing not only enriches the piece with a unique texture and deep tone, but also contributes to the visual narrative of the work, enhancing the contrast between full and empty spaces. These gaps, more than simple absences, are invitations to contemplate the work from different perspectives, suggesting an internal tension that challenges the viewer's perception. This sculpture invites a reflection on the balance between the material and the immaterial, offering a visual experience that goes beyond simple observation. Through its form and structure, it proposes a meditation on how emptiness can complement and define solidity, inviting viewers to consider the hidden dimensions of presence and absence.

He is one of the most remarkable emerging sculptor of the new artistic scene in Spain, he has done more than 60 expos, exhibited in Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Germany and Holland, and won several prizes. His metallic work wanders about the idea of the sacred. He gets the inspirations from classic forms that he puts together with modernity through a simplification exercise. One can sense the influence of great contemporary sculptors such as Noguchi, Chillida, Julio González or Richard Serra. Canduela’s work, in metallic welded sheets, is an outstanding pledge on the sculptural quality, on the well-done job and on the attention of the details. The goal of his work is to condense and summarize, through abstraction, the human subconscious. He takes as an essential example the interaction between the artist and his work. The sculptures arouse a singular attraction as well as a self-presence that is almost magnetic. Roberto Canduela’s career is moving upwards. Some of his sculptures are part of private collections; some has been used as Public Work in Spain for different companies and organizations.
