Rosa Amorós

Barcelona, 1945.

The main nucleus on which most of his work is based revolves around the essential questions that have troubled man from the beginning of the myths of creation, religion, or being and the relationship with otherness. The result of mythological stories, the observation of the environment and the human condition. Most of his creations make us think of the entrails of the human being.

It gathers works that go from the beginnings of the nineties to the present. It includes sculpture, painting and works on paper. Within the field of sculpture we will see that clay has been the material with which he has worked most recurrently, which has allowed him to emphasize the austere, rough and devoid of ornaments. As for the work in two dimensions, the work on paper made with ink and gouache stands out, but it also presents a selection of fabrics.

She studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona and at the Massana School, where she also worked as a teacher between 1971 and 2005.

His artistic activity begins with the participation in the Joan Miró Prize of 1967 and 1968. As of 1976, René Metras is interested in his work and thus begins a period of fifteen years of exhibitions continued to his gallery in Barcelona. In 1987, he participated in Arte Triangle, a workshop directed by Anthony Caro at the Casa de la Caridad (Barcelona) where an evolution of his work, both conceptual and formal, is evident. This evolution was consolidated in 1991 with the works carried out for the International Ceramics Studio in Kecskemét (Hungary) and in 1992 for the inauguration of the European Ceramic Work Center in 's-Hertogenbosch (Holland).
