Fernando Casasempere

Born 1958, Santiago, Chile

"The traditional blue and white Chinese ceramics as well as the later European ceramics have inspired me to search for new ways to apply colour in my porcelain sculptures and in turn keep the geological aspect of my work. Taking advantage of the natural transparency of porcelain I thought it interesting to link that quality with a watercolour technique, which also relies on the application of colour under the same effect.  The square shape of the sculpture allows me to create an interior dynamic contained in the solidity of the square."
