Miguel Branco

Miguel Branco’s (*1963, Castelo Branco, Portugal) sculptures evoke an enigmatic universe, both in their form and meaning. Of characteristically small dimensions, the works force the beholder to look closely and enter into a dialogue. Their ambiguous presence, which offers no narrative, entertains and unnerves at the same time. His sculptures, which are formed with Fimo modelling clay around a wire and wooden core, also rekindle visual fragments from our collective culture. Surrealism, symbolism, pop culture and natural history are intertwined and make for a surprising composition of disquieting naturalism.
