1. Trajectory

    miquel planas rosselló

     

    Nace en Palma de Mallorca en 1961. Cursa estudios de Bellas Artes en la Facultad de Barcelona, donde lleva a cabo su actividad docente como Catedrático de Escultura. Desde 1983 su labor creativa se centra fundamentalmente en la escultura, aunque desarrolla un gran trabajo de dibujo paralelo al proceso de creación escultórica.

    Su trabajo evidencia un gran interés por la tierra y el espacio, por su conocimiento y descripción, que se manifiesta de la misma manera en su proceso de trabajo, en un uso preciso de los materiales.

     

    citas:

    …es importante resaltar el carácter inherente a los propios materiales, pues no hay duda que cada material posee en si mismo un potencial expresivo muy significativo. El artista, al conocerlo puede remarcarlo e incluso acentuarlo hasta el punto de otorgarle vida, tal como defendía Jean Dubuffet, que sin dudarlo defendió la validez de tantos y tantos materiales heteróclitos, a través, no tan sólo en su propia obra, sino también en sus escritos….

    Lourdes Cirlot

    Crítica de Arte y Catedrática de Historia del Arte de la Universidad de Barcelona

     

    …..la obra de Planas se balancea entre la intuición y la elaboración, entre el volumen y el espacio, entre el ritmo y el silencio, entre la grandilocuencia y el detalle, creando sensaciones contradictorias en el espectador que a menudo tarda en ver los pequeños detalles que se esconden como signos bajo la corteza y que hacen de los volúmenes y de las formas primitivas una obra de arte moderna. Toda la simplicidad que proyecta, se convierte en sorpresa, como si la intención con la cual ha sido generada multiplicase las sensaciones visuales y táctiles que la madera provoca. Una obra sorprendente fruto del cálido azar y la fría teoría, que nace de unas voces profundas y que recorren un largo camino de pequeñas modificaciones hasta devolvernos poéticamente a las extrañas sensaciones que la naturaleza provoca. Una escultura que tiene diversos planos: un fondo a menudo poco elaborado y una superficie que ocupa pequeños espacios en los que el escultor evoca simples signos que quieren definir su tiempo….

    Miquel Alzueta

    Escritor

     

    …a primera vista, la obra nos remite a un silencioso pero evidente trabajo de estructura. Mediante una expresión directa de la materia, trabajada de manera sutil y precisa, las piezas nos transmiten, imponen y ofrecen, una sensación de valor estructural. Este sentido estructural nos transporta a aquello más profundo del proceso creativo. La manipulación de los elementos matéricos, ligera en apariencia, ya sea de planchas metálicas o bien de listones de madera intercalados, propone un universo de posibilidades expresivas y gramaticales. Tanto sus dibujos como sus esculturas muestran un interés por la disposición y la composición de los elementos que la configuran. A pesar de ello, encontramos una paradoja en sus propuestas. Sus piezas – estructuras, compuestas por segmentos, retículas o divisiones, en vez de enfatizar en el valor de la fragmentación, generan un efecto de unidad y de conjunto. De esta manera, se da una coherencia formal interna que hace percibir sus obras como pequeñas construcciones, como gráciles concreciones de ideas…

    Virginia Roy

    Historiadora del Arte y Comisaria de exposiciones de la Fundació La Caixa.

     

    …si tuviera que definir cuáles son las cualidades que caracterizan su obra, utilizaría tres vocablos: abstracción, rigor y materialidad…

    Carlos Ferrater

    Arquitecto y Catedrático de Proyectos de la Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya

     

    …bajo la apariencia de una abstracción irreferencial, fríamente calculada, la obra de Miquel Planas se sostiene sobre unos valores plásticos que no pretenden hacerse fácilmente evidentes a un observador distraído. Estilísticamente deudora del minimalismo en cuanto al reduccionismo de sus formas, al carácter repetitivo de su estructura y a la contundencia de su presencia física, a pesar de ello, la obra de Planas tiene un sentido emblemático que le permite establecer un diálogo con el lugar específico para el cual ha sido creada…

    Javier Maderuelo

    Crítico de Arte y Catedrático de la Universidad de Alcalá de Henares

     

    …ahora, aquellos pequeños espacios simbólicos excavados en el corazón de la madera, en cavidades interiores de auténtica vocación espacial. La vertical ha dejado paso a la horizontalidad en un nuevo orden estructural de las esculturas, que han pasado a ser modulares, más minimalistas, pero sin olvidar el origen poético y simbólico del cual proceden.

    Estructura y espacio han devenido una misma cosa…

    …enormemente intuitivo, no hay tras su trabajo una dimensión proyectual. El espacio es intuitivo y la escala humana aún le sirve para tomar medida de lo que quiere construir. Su escultura es, en definitiva, muy próxima al hombre y es también en este sentido, que enlaza con la tradición más remota del trabajo escultórico, invocando en todo momento la memoria de su propio pasado…

    Pilar Parcerisas

    Crítica de Arte

     

    …no obstante esto, en la obra de Miquel Planas tenemos que encontrar matices, precisamente porque se aleja de los prototipos. ¿O es que, en realidad, es más poético, a priori un metro cuadrado de plancha de hierro, minimalista, que un metro cuadrado de madera vieja, o tratado como si fuera vieja? ¿O es que un metro cuadrado de material industrial sin ningún tipo de manipulación ha de provocar mayor sensación y conmoción que un metro cuadrado de de madera, apenas manipulada?

    Miquel Planas, en gran parte de sus obras actuales consigue la reivindicación de la madera con un nada común encanto poético. No se trata de un residual industrial, si no de un residual campestre, enraizado en la tierra…

    Francesc Miralles

    Crítico de Arte

     

    …la característica fundamental en la obra de Miquel Planas es su voluntad arquitectónica. Por medio de una manipulación muy precisa de los materiales da a entender el proceso de fabricación de la obra, por un lado, y evoca por otro conflictos humanos cuya resolución sólo el artista está en disposición de sintetizar. Se advierte en Planas la tendencia a resaltar los procesos y, por tanto, a mostrar productos mixtos en su geometría, en sus materiales o en sus acabados. El paradójico equilibrio de sus composiciones denota una índole cálidamente humana.
