An exhibition at 3 Punts Galeria features a selection of works by this Barcelona-born artist, including his Renaissance women.
The sculptures of Gerard Mas leave no viewer indifferent. They conjure up thoughts of modernity while making you smile, but also stand out for their formal precision and meticulous execution. Using traditional materials like alabaster and marble, he adds a light polychrome layer of colour to make them a bit more lifelike. The realistic shapes of his figures, generally inspired by great classical artists, are shown in discretely anachronistic moments, creating tension that surprises the viewer. For example, his Renaissance women are frozen in time while blowing a bubble with chewing gum, showing off their brackets or petting a rat slumbering on their laps. By blending the two time periods, he makes them very curiously contemporary.
The Gerard Mas exhibition will be on from 10 October through 14 December, Mondays from 4 pm to 8 pm and Tuesday to Saturday from 11 am to 8 pm, at 3 Punts Galeria. Mas, born in 1976, has trained at several art schools around the country, including Llotja Advanced School of Art and Design in Barcelona and Escola Superior de Conservació i Restauració de Béns Culturals de Catalunya. There he polished his talent, which he has showcased in numerous shows in recent years. Plus, his work can be found in various national and international art collections, and he has taken part in fairs all over the world.
This exhibition is free of charge and open to the public. More information is available on the gallery website.
