Profile image of Sandra BorgesSandra later work is a result form her reflection about human relations. Sometimes looking through the stereotypes and sometimes through the eyes of a individual, it is always about how one personality is form and how one relates to the other and to his culture. Working only with Portuguese stone (marbles, limestone`s and breccia), she also mix it with other media if the idea demands it. The result is very personal way to make art objects that link the tradition of stone carving with other materials and plastic languages.

Sculpture description:
Sculpture hand carved (no electric tools) in a quarry wall, inserted in the theme "De Abîme au Azur" ("From the Abyss to the Blue"), at the Les Lapidiales site, Port D`Envaux, France.
Artist's comments:
Using the hand, one of the most expressive elements of the human body, I tried to impress the idea of the effort needed to make a big carving as this and in this conditions, and also the amount of energy expended to build, bit by bit, an artistic career. It`s curious to see as the hand took shape how easily people identify it as an mountain climber hand. They saw the character suspended in the void and struggling to reach the next gripping point in the rock. In other words, they identify themselves with the needed effort to achieve a greater goal in their live.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Accepting (abstract Seated Woman Sitting statuettte)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Plamen and Peter, I am please to advise you both that `Acceptance` arrived yesterday afternoon and I unwrapped her in the early hours of this morning. She is without doubt the most beautiful item I have ever possessed. She is not a mere statue, she is sublime and a real presence in our lives already. Her slenderness and beauty is a sheer joy to behold. Thank you both and especially you Plamen for your creativity. You cannot possibly know just how much this beau... [Read more]
