Isabel Miramontes

Isabel Miramontes was born in 1962 in Santiago de Compostella, Spain.

It was in 1994, in a sculptor friend's studio, that Miramontes made her passionate discovery of sculpture.  This became her preferred mode of expression, to which she has devoted herself ever since.  The visual language of Isabel Miramontes steadfastly represents the human being in all the ambiguity of its power and frailty, its confinement and yearning for liberty, its dreams and triumphs.  This fascinating figure, the synthesis of forms and thoughts, expresses the reality of life with its moments of joy, but also drama, abandon and tension.  Indeed a figure who most assuredly speaks to everyone at the very depth of their being.

"It is not me who went after the sculpture, that it came to me was obvious. It was instant; I never stopped working the earth."
