Sculptures made from steel are often seen as cold and unyielding so it makes a change to see these sculptures by Barcelona-based Jordi Díez Fernández show expressions in their faces and emotion in the position of their bodies.
Along with his recent tribute to Ildefons Cerdà, the urban planner responsible for designing the 19th-century extension of Barcelona called the Eixample, Fernández has produced intricate sculptures of beautiful women, athletic and muscled men, and lovers entwined in an embrace.
Fernández says that his goal is to try "to bring sculpture back to the place where it belongs, the intimate place where the spectator gets moved from his insides, from the feelings deep down, the place where feelings get shaken."
