Rogerio Mendonca

 

For Rogério Mendonça, dealing with clay gives, above all, the pleasure to work with movement, volume, and freedom. The artist explores women's poetic faces and forms, and his figures are full of delightfulness. 

By observing the texture and movement of his sculptures, it is possible to perceive the subtle and delicate gestures of the artist. A duality is presented as a result: the sculptures are at the same time full of details, and roughly rustic. 

The material used is clay and iron powder, originated from the region where it lives, which is very rich in mineral resources.
