Yeins Gomez

Yeins Gomez welds his sculpture from forged steel, then grinds and paints the final product. The medium is less striking than the tensions that he is able to achieve due to the strength of the material. Several of his sculptures rotate, bend, and lean into space creating the visual effect of figures exerting, or reacting to external, force. Above, Gomez’ Angel appears to display both properties leaning forward at the precipice of flight, simultaneously conjuring the visual effect of gravity and the sensation that the figure is overcoming the external force.
