 The contemporary discussions in Spinosa’s sculpture
 

Antonio Spinosa’s sculpture in carbon steel is graphic. This sentence would be nonsense, if written on the 19th century; and, immediately, contested. That because until the 20th century, sculpture was a volumetric form in space.
 
Marcel Duchamp (1889-1968) made the question: what is Art? Back in 1917, he sent a sanitary toilet as an art piece to an exhibit, in New York, being refused. Marcel Duchamp’s question is still alive nowadays on the deepest contemporary discussions.

This question led to others: why a sculpture should have volume? That way was born the sculpture without volume, lying on the floor or suspended on the air, or still inserted on the roof, as Antonio Spinosa does.

The artist calls one of his sculpture series as Strips, others as Ties or Flames, but the sculpture runs the space graphically, many times sculptural artworks create enigmas on the wall, as copper sheets, until it becomes shiny panels.

Finally, Spinosa’s graphic sculpture has reached the roof, for example at the decorated room by Casa Cor, an Architectural Project.
 
Spinosa’s sculptures converse with “Animals” by Lygia Clark, climb the walls, in a cheerful way, play with the ambient lights, are forms and molds, true devices of meaning its firm and strong colors.
