                    [post_content] => Kamen Tanev's ‘Movement in Space' portrays movement and energy through creative innovation, resulting in a dynamic work which embodies motion and progress. For Tanev, sculpture is a formative process involving geometrics, physics, biology and other precise applications. This scientific approach enhances the artist’s ability to share his inspiration and vision in three dimensional work. He creates new meaning through intriguing details, adjusting dimensions and composition, and placing his sculpture in unexpected environments.

The unseen, the not knowing, and the veil over reality are aspects that occur frequently in his sculptural work, investigating the balance between life and time. Through sculpture, he explores surfaces that encourage the viewer to want to dismantle them, to uncover them, and to find the underlying thoughts and memories imbued in stone.

Most of Alvarez’s work portrays wave-like structures, composed in dynamic and changing ways. Alvarez strives to reflect the dynamism and fluidity of these elements within an inert and inelastic material such as stone, working to maintain the fluidity of the initial design throughout the carving process.

                    [post_content] => Mohammed Al Thagafi’s ‘Ambition’ is inspired by the ambition of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with three rings that symbolize the first, second and third stages of the Saudi state. The graceful texture of the piece represents Al Thagafi's relationship with modern architecture as a source of inspiration throughout his work.

                    [post_content] => Carlos Monge's 'In-between' tries to signify, through sculptural language, a tactile visuality between matter and emptiness, where each one is built on top of the other in complementary opposition. Within this visuality, the marble is poured into the space, developing mobility, finding in the hole all its clarity, its lights and its shadows, demonstrating the possibility of being. Embodying a space where the viewer finds himself with the environment that surrounds him, 'In-between' is half refuge, half way. A corner where you can take refuge while imagining the relationship between the interior and the exterior in all its infinite nuances. An osmosis between the intimate space and the indeterminate natural space, their relationships and interdependence. A third space, a cosmos of what is ajar, of what is between two, a fabric where infinite correspondences emerge.

Carlos Monge (b. 1947) lives between Mexico and Spain. He graduated in film studies (1979) before pursuing sculpture with an undergraduate in Sculpture at Secure Social Institute, México D.F. (1983). Monge is the Mexican and Spanish representative of the International Association for Monumental Sculpture Events (AIESM). The main objective of his work is to go beyond the creation and realization of a sculpture as a simple art object. It is a permanent reflection, as a way of weaving art and life, with which to give meaning to specific sites and expand discussion scenarios from the perspective of the multiple cultural, ecological, and economic practices existing in different parts of the world.

Monge has participated in 100+ symposiums around the world since 1990. Recent events include: Tuwaiq International Sculpture Symposium, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (2019); Symposium International Sculpture Santiago de Chile, Chile (2019, 2018); International Symposium Sculpture in the Desert Minqin, China (2018) and International Sculpture Symposium Un Cuyo University, Mendoza, Argentina (2018). Monge has also showcased at notable international symposiums in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, and more.

                    [post_content] => 'Perseverance in Time' is part of Damjan Komel's 'Seeds of Light' series, wherein seeds are considered as time capsules, vessels traveling through time and space. He uses the form of the maple seed as a metaphor for our dreams and wishes. Blown away by the wind, these seeds fly far to find fertile ground where they sprout into an eternal bloom. Komel also finds inspiration in places he has travelled such as the pyramids in Mexico, or Angkor Wat in Cambodia, where the spiral form is present, as a whisper from the past. For 'Perseverance in Time' Komel combines the power of ancient spirals in old ornaments found in Saudi Arabia to grow a contemporary message. This sculpture portrays a man who, over time, is untiringly seeking opportunities, knowledge for new development, personal growth, progress and prosperity.

Damjan Komel (b. 1971) graduated in sculpture and ceramic from the Famul Stuart School of Art, Ljubljana, Slovenia (2004). In his artistic research he seeks to tell his own story, his experiences, personal responses and feelings, as well as those of people and situations he encounters in his daily life. He uses traditional hand tools, such as the chisel on stone that leaves a unique trail, reflective of the sculptor’s strength and artistic thoughts. He also works with white marble, preferring to sand the marble over a perfectly polished look, leaving the surface soft, flowing and undulating. As well as stone and marble, he works in the classic materials of bronze, wood and ceramics.

Komel has participated in international sculpture symposiums in countries such as Italy, Taiwan (R.O.C.), Slovenia and the Czeck Republic. His work has also been exhibited as part of group exhibitions in countries such as China, Czech Republic, Italy, U.K. and many more.
