Description

Hypercube II

We discovered organic plaster stucco when we arrived at our workshop in Seville. Artisans dedicated to the world of Holy Week in Seville work in the same space and the “gilder’s stucco”, as it is also called, has been used for hundreds of years to coat wood before applying gold leaf or paint to carved pieces of art.

After cutting and assembling the pieces of wood that make up the piece we have applied layer by layer with a brush more than 15 layers of this soft and delicate mixture, allowing us to cover with texture forms that a priori are flat and lacking in volume. Layer by layer the piece takes on dimensions and textures, becomes organic, thickens in a natural way, generating light and shadow in the sculpture.

For us, the result is a play of light and shadow, of heights and textures, with a malleable and sinuous appearance.

With design elements of brutalism and minimalism, Hypercube II speaks of parallel worlds, of shamanic futurism and that oscillate between popular culture and a ritual world, on a thin line between the rational and the dreamlike. Objects that seek to activate the subconscious and the collective memory with a totemic and ceremonial character.

An aesthetic universe full of sumptuousness, textures, volumes, colours, mysticism and concentric shapes that seek to expand the consciousness and make the mind wander on an inner journey without beginning.

This piece is a sculpture.

About Las Ánimas Visit Showroom →

LAS ÁNIMAS is a creative studio based in Seville (Spain). Their work includes symbolic, tribal and esoteric elements, and arises from the expressive need of sharing an aesthetic universe; a dreamlike parallel world full of visions; of architectural references, both historical, fictional and coming from images underlying popular culture; hardwired to the unconscious and collective memory. Using a language of geometric and iterative patterns, they experiment with materials, shapes and textures, to develop an iconography of retro-futuristic, transgressive, ceremonial and deeply evocative aesthetics. As a result of this altered field of view where sumptuousness and magic gather, high sensory impact pieces of ceremonial character emerge. Their creative universe encompasses references as distant as Science Fiction, tribal cultures, distortion of reality, cybernetics, duality, experimental electronic music or architectural brutalism; an imaginary that links with the elements of their personal environment, readapted and projected from their very own insight. Their creative body includes pieces of furniture in limited editions, sculptures, interventions and unique objects; everything designed and created by themselves; a symbolic universe full of emotions that lead to a spiritual mood lost in time. Works conceived as totems that challenge functionality and form: latches that open secret trapdoors to higher states of consciousness, connected with mythology, ancient ceremonies, imaginary rites, sacred symbols and spirituality. Along this process, the conception, creation and evolution of each work resembles a ritual of exploration, of alchemy, of experimentation at their studio / laboratory with materials and forms until the pieces finally emerge. Their personal concerns join the influx of Seville, Andalusia and Spain; Its culture, art, folklore, technical processes and artistic tradition are present, mixed, assembled, fused in one way or another in each one of their pieces.
