FERNANDO SUAREZ

A well-known Spanish artist, Fernando is best known as a sculptor. One of his favorite themes are horses, a symbolic for him of freedom and elegance. In his works, the most remarkable aspect is his strong and flowing lines. The lines capture the agility and strength of horses and bulls, his human subjects are perhaps more grounded. But each piece unfailingly captures virility of life. They are particularly evident in his sculptures of bulls and horses where they embody the vigor of movement. In his paintings, the lines of his sculptures can be seen in the swift strokes of paint. Thick coats of paint also create concave surfaces, so that the painting acquires a 3-dimensional aspect. Some of his most remarkable works include the stunning public bronze sculpture Juanita Fortuna.
