Good art can be a matter of a good concept or excellent execution, truly great art has that special “something” more. The insightful sculptures of Sandra Garcia-Pardo have that “more” in spades. “When I create, I think about art’s most precious qualities: being used as self-expression; and beauty, which is forever its essence,” she says. Her pieces are socially thought-provoking, featuring the human being in different stages of life and as an inevitable part of the society we live in. “I combine my creativity with the amazing welding process: I sketch but I also play with metal pieces on my work table; compositions come in both ways,” she says. “I enjoy the benefits of industrial welding using raw steel, applying different patinas or paints to achieve austere works of art, but aesthetically pleasing to the sight, keeping them simple, sans ornaments, just honest.”; SandraGarciaPardo.com.
