Eduardo Lacoma
Verdad 06 - contemporary modern abstract geometric steel sculpture

2015

$4,500

About

Verdad 06 is the sixth contemporary modern abstract geometric sculpture by Spanish artist Eduardo Lacoma from his series Verdad, Spanish for Truth. The sculpture consists of two handmade constructions from cut, welded and polished steel, that are mounted together to form a remarkable vertical rising object. The outer element is 2 mm stainless steel which has been varnished, the inner element is 2 mm corten steel which has been oxidized. Due to the manual process of building and finishing, each element has its own characteristic look, sometimes very smooth, sometimes a little rough but always very sophisticated. From all sides it offers intriguing views, now more closed, then more open. It fits perfectly in a contemporary modern interior setting, on the floor, on a side table, or even on a plinth. It evokes feelings of mid-century modern design whilst being a one-of-a-kind 21st century piece. Eduardo Lacoma (1968, Spain) is a practicing sculptor since many years, in addition to his career as an electronics technician. Being profoundly inspired by art during a trip to Barcelona in his teens, he taught himself the fine art of sculpting, combining materials such as iron, steel and stone. Living and working in Pamplona in the Basque region of Spain, he was originally inspired by the architecture of Gaudi. Gradually his interest shifted however to the sculptural forms of Eduardo Chillida and Jorge Oteiza, both well known 20th century Basque artists. Over the years he has developed his own characteristic sculptural vocabulary, using only cubes and cubic shapes to express himself. In his own sculptures he speaks about human relationships, conveying the importance that these have on the development of a person. Similar to the evolution of human beings, his sculptures are also evolving, looking for their final form. Often he uses corten steel or oxidized steel with its characteristic rough rusted surface. Complementary to this, he adds smooth, painted iron, stainless steel or sometimes even carefully cut alabaster elements. Notwithstanding the contrast between the used materials, they always form visually strong and balanced works. Eduardo Lacoma has been a finalist in various regional competitions and has made a prestigious sculpture for the City of Pamplona (Escultura Corredor del Encierro). His work has been widely exhibited throughout Europe and is part of numerous important private and public collections, including a prestigous work in his hometown in the Museo del Encierro de Pamplona.
