Project Detail

Curated by art historian and critic Mária Enriqueta Guardia Yglesias, the exhibition focused on the artist’s animal and figure themes. Although he is inspired by artists such as Picasso and Brancusi, Sancho gravitates less towards the abstract; his depictions inspired by nature and the spaces in which they are installed carry out a constant dialogue.

Many of the artist’s works grow roots in their settings and thus seize the connection between the individual and the universal by being integrated into a timeless space recalling the cosmos. Also influenced by the Hispanic and pre-Colombian art of the land into which he was born and presenting this influence with new readings, Sancho masterfully uses different media: wood, granite, marble, bronze, iron plates, and found objects allow the artist to recreate the animal forms and the infinite representations of femininity.
