A vast collection of 80 pieces in bronze, glass and fiberglass opened yesterday, March 29, at the Galeria Dolores de Sierra, in the heart of Madrid.

The exhibition will be opened to the public for a month, and reveals a most powerful strand of the art work of Angel Orensanz. It is a powerful body of sculpture in bronze, steel and glass. The bronzes were shown last time in Rome in an exhibition organized by the Ministry of Culture of Italy; similar steel pieces were shown in Dusseldorf and at the Water Museum in Lisbon (Portugal). The glass and fiberglass pieces presently shown at the Dolores de Sierra Gallery in Madrid belong to the family of his recent sculptures cast in Murano Venice (Italy), and belong to the same family of the ones that form part of the Saatchi and Saatchi London Collection.

This is an essentialist exhibition centered in three materials that are an integral part of the canon work of Orensanz. This exhibition does not deal with Orensanz's prolific fabrics sculpture, works on paper, painting, film and video that will profusely be shown in Cardiff, Tel Aviv, Palermo and Coimbra later on throughout this 2007. The language of bronze, steel and glass acquires in the hands of Angel Orensanz an animated, creational and other worldly condition seldom generated by any other contemporary artist. These pieces, irrespective of their date, material or texture, are endowed with vibrancy, ingenuity and unparalleled assertiveness.

The exhibition will be open to the public until the 21st of April 2007.
