Since my time in high school, sculpture has been an obsession and a fascination for me. The idea of molding three-dimensional forms, with contour, details and colors provides me endless creativity. I have been privileged to have worked with masters such as Fernando Botero. Being an artist sculptor has never been easy. However, I cannot describe the amount of joy, happiness and peace that I feel when I am sculpting especially when working on a new idea.
I have developed an affinity for fiberglass and bronze as a medium. Such material provides me with infinite ways to express my ideas, my feelings, my desires, my thoughts and the challenge of knowing how we the artists are very different. That’s why I experiment with new techniques and finishes, including chrome, bronze, volcano rock, wood, resin and fiberglass. I have been a recipient of many awards that have set me apart from other sculptors.
The sculpture captures the human form at its edge in extreme sports such as snowboarding, speedskating and rock climbing. My intention is to capture the attention of other humans to stimulate a dialogue of love, admiration, knowledge and feelings for art. My dreams are very clear and my most important wish is that my work will bring the same joy and happiness they bring to me. And that other people will love my pieces as much as I do. ~ Ancizar Marin
