Damjan Komel Originally from Nova Gorica, Slovenia. His artistic language describes man`s constant fight with his own nature. Though the organic forms of Warriors of Light or the other sculptures in different materials - marble, wood, clay or bronze he is trying to express his inner feelings, observations, frustrations, ideas and beliefs into contemporary art language. With the knowledge of traditional carving methods, mixed with today`s modern carving techniques, his sculptures assume the power to create within the viewer the desire to touch t...
Sculpture: 'Bitel II (I Wish) Gold Fish sculpture statue statuette statuary' by Damjan Komel
The series of Bitel (Bollard) describe the life story and the artist viewing of today desires. BITEL (I wanna) A bollard is used for mooring ships in a port. In the local dialect of the Slovenian littoral region Primorska the word has a double meaning. On one hand it means a bollard, on the other it means "I`d like to, I wanna…." A ship is said to be the safest when moored in a harbour. I wonder when and how to moor our ship of life to be ﬁrmly tied in the harbour of our life? Everybody should ﬁnd a way to be safely anchored. The Slovenians, are said to have at least two bollards, i.e. having the most beautiful house in the neighbourhood, and a better car than our neighbours. But what are my bollards? It often occurs pictures start moving in my mind after hearing a certain sound or seeing an object, and unrepeatable and unique stories appear on my memory screen. As such, they have become a precious record of my soul. Gasolina, te gusta gasolina? There is a Caribbean song on air, and pictures start moving quicker and quicker, bringing back power and memories. She is out of sight. I open the little inner box of my spirit and set my memories free. Sweet memorable nights, sunsets and curls of ﬂower scent sliding under ﬁngers, for the story to be burnt in the inner reﬂection of my soul. "Bitel" - I would like. Bitel - I would like to search again for my safe heaven, I would like to search for a ladder of gold to climb to my starlet, I would like to read a record of golden words, I would like to bite a golden apple, I would like to taste a cup of Dominican coffee, I would like to sow golden grains, I would like to build a golden tower, I would like to seek after the key to unlock every door, I would like to………..bitel.

"I say that the art of sculpture is eight times as great as any other art based on drawing, because a statue has eight views and they must all be equally well made." Benvenuto Cellini Italian Baroque goldsmith and sculptor1500-1571
Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return. He worked round the clock and was incredibly intuitive with his understanding of what I wanted. This was despite an 8 hour time difference and having poor English as our common language. He w...
