Rosa Amorós

Sculpture and work on paper

Palmadotze Art Gallery, is pleased to welcome the work of Rosa Amorós (Barcelona, ​​1945), which presents a selection of recent works on canvas, paper and sculpture.

Throughout her extensive artistic career, Amorós has cultivated her own language, abstract and poetic, through which she deepens in existential questions such as being, creation, religion, sexuality or death. Also, most of her creations, arise from the observation of the natural environment and the human condition.

In the exhibition, the artist presents different works made on paper, with inks and gouache . We will also be able to see new works made in acrylic on canvas and the sculpture will also have its space. Within the terrain of sculpture, clay is the most used material and allows it to highlight the material itself, with its austerity and devoid of ornaments. In this sense, the art critic Frederic Montornes mentioned in the presentation text of the exhibition "Natural Park": "The way to connect with the telluric, ancestral, primitive and the questions that, around the myths of creation, the religiosity, the being and its relation with the other, accompany the man from its origins, is what has made that Rosa Amorós is present in this sample through, precisely, of some of the works with which it has carried out a an ancestral material, emerging from the bowels of the earth, capable of evoking from the beyond the relationship of man with nature and example that, within his work, Amorós devotes an attention special to the nature and the essence of man as reasons to speak of the force of life, passion, pain, pleasure, enigma and all those emotions that provoke the contemplation of the natural environment.


Rosa Amorós Bernadó studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona and at the Massana School, where she also worked as a teacher between 1971 and 2005.
