  1. Trajectory

    miquel planas rosselló

     

    Born in Palma de Mallorca in 1961. He studied Fine Arts at the Faculty of Barcelona, where he carried out his teaching activity as University Professor of Sculpture. Since 1983 his creative work has focused mainly on sculpture, although he has developed a great work of drawing parallel to the process of sculptural creation.

    His work shows a great interest in land and space, for his knowledge and description, which is manifested in the same way in his work process, in a precise use of materials.

     

    quotes:

     

    … It is important to highlight the inherent character of the materials themselves, as there is no doubt that each material has in itself a very significant expressive potential. The artist, upon knowing it, can highlight it and even accentuate it to the point of giving it life, as defended by Jean Dubuffet, who without hesitation defended the validity of so many heteroclite materials, through, not only in his own work, but also in his writings…

    Lourdes Cirlot

    Art Critic and Professor of Art History at the University of Barcelona

     

    ….. Planas' work balances between intuition and elaboration, between volume and space, between rhythm and silence, between grandiloquence and detail, creating contradictory sensations in the viewer who often takes time to see the small details that are hidden as signs under the bark and that make volumes and primitive forms a modern work of art. All the simplicity that it projects becomes surprise, as if the intention with which it was generated multiplies the visual and tactile sensations that the wood provokes. A surprising work that is the result of warm chance and cold theory, which comes from deep voices and goes a long way from small modifications to poetically returning us to the strange sensations that nature causes. A sculpture that has several planes: a background often little elaborated and a surface that occupies small spaces in which the sculptor evokes simple signs that want to define his time….

    Miquel Alzueta

    Gallery owner

     

    ... at first glance, the work refers us to a silent but evident work of structure. Through a direct expression of the material, worked in a subtle and precise way, the pieces transmit, impose and offer us a feeling of structural value. This structural sense transports us to the deepest part of the creative process. The manipulation of the material elements, light in appearance, either of metal plates or of interspersed wooden slats, proposes a universe of expressive and grammatical possibilities. Both his drawings and his sculptures show an interest in the arrangement and composition of the elements that make it up. Despite this, we find a paradox in his proposals. His pieces - structures, made up of segments, grids or divisions, instead of emphasizing the value of fragmentation, generate an effect of unity and unity. In this way, there is an internal formal coherence that makes his works perceive as small constructions, as graceful concretions of ideas ...

    Virginia Roy

    Curator. University Museum of Contemporary Art (MUAC)

     

    ... if I had to define what are the qualities that characterize his work, I would use three words: abstraction, rigor and materiality ...

    Carlos Ferrater

    Architect and Professor of Projects at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya

     

    ... under the guise of a coldly calculated, irreferential abstraction, Miquel Planas' work is based on plastic values that are not intended to be readily apparent to a distracted observer. Stylistically indebted to minimalism in terms of the reductionism of its forms, the repetitive nature of its structure and the forcefulness of its physical presence, in spite of this, Planas's work has an emblematic meaning that allows him to establish a dialogue with the specific place for which has been created ...

    Javier Maderuelo

    Art Critic and University Professor at the University of Alcalá de Henares.

     

    … Now, those small symbolic spaces excavated in the heart of the wood, in interior cavities of true spatial vocation. The vertical has given way to horizontality in a new structural order of the sculptures, which have become modular, more minimalist, but without forgetting the poetic and symbolic origin from which they come. Structure and space have become the same thing ...

    ... enormously intuitive, there is no project dimension behind his work. The space is intuitive and the human scale still serves to measure what you want to build. His sculpture is, in short, very close to man and it is also in this sense that it connects with the remotest tradition of sculptural work, invoking at all times the memory of his own past ...

    Pilar Parcerisas

    Art critic

     

    …notwithstanding this, in Miquel Planas's work we have to find nuances, precisely because it is far from prototypes. Or is it actually more poetic, a priori a square meter of iron plate, minimalist, than a square meter of old wood, or treated as if it were old? Or is it that a square meter of industrial material without any kind of manipulation has to cause more sensation and commotion than a square meter of wood, hardly handled?

    Miquel Planas, in much of his current works, achieves a claim to wood with an unusual poetic charm. It is not an industrial waste, but a rural waste, rooted in the earth ...

    Francesc Miralles

    Art critic

     

    ... the fundamental characteristic of Miquel Planas' work is his architectural will. By means of a very precise manipulation of the materials, it implies the process of manufacturing the work, on the one hand, and evokes other human conflicts whose resolution only the artist is able to synthesize. There is a tendency in Planas to highlight the processes and, therefore, to show mixed products in their geometry, their materials or their finishes. The paradoxical balance of his compositions denotes a warmly human nature.

    Juan Luis Calbarro

    Critic art

    … .Miquel Planas offers a discourse based on the intention of deciphering and codifying the phenomena of life: observation-interpretation-experimentation, to evaluate and rationalize the interpretive adventure in which we are all immersed ...

    ... form, gesture and matter maintain an interventional relationship that generates an elegant plasticity, which is evident both in iron and in the various materials or supports that the artist uses ...

    Gudi Moragues

    Critic and art curator

     

    … The landscape is observed from a height. A height that allows you to discern the geographical limits quite accurately. The fragment of the landscape that interests us is totally arbitrary, after a study it will be decided what or how to mean that piece of strip of land that interested us from the air. Once marked, its singularity marked by some spellings, by dimensions, we will fix our gaze on what was intended, on that abstraction and portion of the sample, on that DNA of the landscape that Miquel Planas decided to single out and show us.

    Juan José Oliva Gallardo

    Art critic

     

    ... as a Mallorcan knows very well that his landscape has a geographical end, he has studied it from within the landscapes, from the sensations and feelings, but he has also studied it from the outside, that is, from space outside the territory

    .... shapes the landscape from different points of view, very important, such as the "marés" and iron sculptures, .....

    María José Corominas

    Art critic and curator

     

    The tension contained in the firm appearance of solid structures, built with the minimum essential, denote the maximum precision in the work so that when the expected chance occurs, it does so on the basis of a very balanced base, fleeing the symmetrical artifice. Actually, what interests this artist is the process.

    In the latest works of this sculptor, starting from the fragment until reaching the totality that provides the conjunction of a grid, of multiple grids, they manage to build a series of structures that house the concept of the container. Sculptures-containers, of cavities or empty spaces, which are located between architecture and modern archaeology.
