The wooden sculptures of Kiko Miyares appear as distortions of the human figure, with viewers often circling the work in disbelief. While some of the work is horizontal, the majority vertically transform the body into a new, perception-challenging object. The artist’s toying with color further pushes the surrealism of each subject.
“Miyares reiterates that his point of departure is the presentation of the human form in the stages of his creation,” a statement says, as translated. “Moment in which the passage between a represented being and the object is explored, without forgetting the implications that this generates when acquiring a duality. These approaches are approached from a manual and direct work of wood.”
